Re: Pile supported foundation wall design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ken:

If your walls are not too tall, you could take the shear and the moment at the stem and use the UBC section 1806.8.1 to design the piles.  You have to provide a torsional member to transfer the moments to the piles.  Raj_Calc_Lateral  (excel workbook) has a worksheet that calculates pile depth given the shear and moment.  If you are interested, I can lend you a copy.

Good question Bill.  What I am envisioning is a standard stem of a 
cantilevered retaining wall supported on a linear gradebeam/pile cap with 
piles below - is this what is meant by regularly- spaced "soldier piles"?
