Abstract:

"This international piling handbook is essential for geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists responsible for designing and constructing piled foundations. It explains general principles and practice and details current types of pile, piling equipment and methods. It includes calculations of the resistance of piles to compressive loads, pile groups under compressive loading, piled foundations for resisting uplift and lateral loading and the structural design of piles and pile groups. Marine structures, durability of piled foundations, ground investigations, and pile testing are also covered as are miscellaneous problems such as machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, geothermal piles and unexploded ordnance. This edition has been fully up-dated to apply the latest version of Eurocode 7 and the UK National Annex, and refers to other structural Eurocodes for steel, concrete and timber relevant to pile design. New British Standards covering pile construction and material testing are extensively cross-referenced to provide a comprehensive text compatible with the Eurocodes, and aspects of now withdrawn BSI codes are retained where useful to the designer. Changes to the procurement and management of civil engineering contracts applicable to piling projects are summarised. It is well illustrated and includes numerous examples, re-worked to the codes, many based on actual problems"--

"Preface to the sixth edition Two factors are driving the development of modern pile design and construction-the growth in demand for high-rise buildings and the subsequent requirement for ever larger piles, frequently in areas with poor subsoils. New piling techniques and powerful piling rigs have effectively addressed the problems of producing piles to cope with the larger structural loads, and significant improvements have taken place in understanding the behaviour of piles. However, despite the advances in analytical and numerical methods using sophisticated computer software which allow theoretical soil mechanics solutions to be applied to aspects of pile design, much reliance still has to be placed on empirical correlations. The late Michael Tomlinson was an empiricist committed to the scientific method with extensive practical knowledge, and these principles and applications are still the backbone of practical pile design. I have therefore endeavoured to keep to the spirit of MJT's work, retaining a substantial amount of his writings on the technicalities of pile design, particularly the demonstration of the basic principles using his hand calculation methods. However, there are new codified design procedures which have to be addressed. For example, the formal adoption in Europe of the Eurocodes for structural design (and 'load and resistance factor design' more generally elsewhere) has led to new ways of assessing design parameters and safety factors. One of the main objectives in this edition has been to give an overview of the current Eurocode requirements combined with the practicalities of applying the new suite of British Standards which relate to construction materials and installation procedures."--
