RE: Repost: Splicing of precast concrete piles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks to all those who have responded.

One reference, that was pointed out to me, treats the subject, namely PCI "Recommended Practice for Design, Manufacture and Installation of Concrete Piling" where it states in Section 2.5.3 that provided the pile can sustain imposed driving loads, then; "...The type of splice selected must depend primarily on service loads and conditions.  Not all splices will develop moment or uplift."

I would be grateful if anyone can tell me where I can find which requirements, if any, US norms have regarding compressive, tensile or bending strength of pile splices, when the piles are always in compression.
