pile friction

pile friction

The sum of friction forces acting on an embedded pile; is limited by (a) the adhesion between the pile and the soil and/or (b) the shear strength of the soil adjacent to the pile.

Based on pile friction capacity and undrained shear strength values, adhesion factor could be calculated by dividing pile friction capacity with undrained shear strength and contact area between pile and soil as shown in Equation 1.
Pile friction capacity and adhesion factor are also varied with time.
A series of experimental study was conducted to investigate the effect of water content variation on adhesion factor on pile friction capacity in the active zone, which approximately has a depth of five meters from soil surface.
