Re: Concrete Pile Cap to Steel Pile Load Transfer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


After the pile is driven and the top cut to the proper elevation It is common then to weld a cap plate, angle lugs, or stiffener plates in the webs to provide a bearing area to meet the concrete allowable stresses.

Please respond to

Concrete Pile Cap to Steel Pile Load Transfer

Does anyone know how a large capacity (100 Ton) steel pile transfers the
load in bearing to a concrete pile cap?  I have an HP12x53 pile w/ an
area of 15.5 in^2 and I've got 12.9 ksi in the steel, but I know that
concrete can't take those kind of stresses.
