RE: Pile cap plate to pile connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am assuming that you are talking about is a cap plate on a driven H pile.  There are no requirements of which I am aware.  In fact the cap plate itself is not required for bearing as indicated by testing at Lehigh many years ago. 
If you are trying to transfer tension it is a different story.  The tension forces must be transfered, but I do not know of any code minimum for welding.
