Objectives

The overall goal of the proposed research project is to develop LRFD recommendations for

driven piles on IGM. Recognizing the design and construction challenges of piles driven on IGM,

the research project is proposed to accomplish the following objectives:

1) Determine representative engineering properties of soil and IGM;

2) Evaluate the variability of soil and IGM properties;

3) Recommend best geotechnical investigation practices for IGM;

4) Develop advanced static analysis methods for pile resistance estimation on IGM;

5) Validate and improve the accuracy of dynamic analysis methods;

6) Investigate pile setup and/or relaxation;

7) Develop LRFD resistance factors for piles on IGM; and

8) Recommend changes and improvements to current pile design and construction

practices.

Scope of Work

The research program was established based on the aforementioned research goals and

objectives. The research objectives will be achieved by completing two phases and fourteen

major tasks.

PHASE I: Data Collection, Geotechnical Investigation and Pile Load Test Program

Task I-1: Historical Pile Data Collection (UW & CU)
