RE: Pile splice question

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


I have done a similar work before for a project in Malibu where significant landslide forces had to be resisted by these 4 feet Dia. Piles.
I designed the top and bottom 20 feet of a 80 feet pile with reinforced concrete and the 40 feet middle with steel H section embedded in concrete pile. We did this for constructability issues and cost.
I extended the main perimeter rebars into the middle 40 feet. I also welded additional the A-706 rebars directly to the flanges of the steel H section.
My intention was to develop the rebar forces H section.

Subject: Pile splice question
I have steel H piles embedded in concrete caissons for a shoring job
that were delivered
a bit short. I would like to add the remainder in a spirally
reinforced section that would
extend up and lap with the H- pile a distance that I am trying to
figure out, would it be a rebar lap splice
