Abstract

: This paper establishes a methodology to quantify pile setup by using recent field test data that was presented in a companion paper for steel H-piles driven in cohesive soils. Existing methods found in literature for the same purpose either require restrikes of piles onsite or are developed for a specific soil type and seldom use easily quantifiable soil properties, despite their significant influence on pile setup. Following a critical evaluation of the existing methods, a new approach for estimating pile setup was developed using dynamic measurements and analyses in combination with measured soil properties, such as the horizontal coefficient of consolidation, undrained shear strength, and the standard penetration test N value. Using pile setup information available in the literature, the proposed approach has shown that it provides good estimates for the setup of steel H-piles, as well as for other types and sizes of driven piles.
