Pile Performance
Pile Performance
The performance of a pile is determined by the following criteria:

Pile Load: The applied load will affect the pile settlement. The greater the load, the larger the settlement.
The usual loads designed to are compression, horizontal and tension.
Pile Diameter
& Length:
The recorded movement at the pile head will be as a result of both elastic shortening and pile settlement. Elastic shortening will influence pile head deflection to a greater extent in a long slender pile than in a short, large diameter pile.
Ground Conditions: The ground conditions and method of pile installation, determines the proportion of applied load carried in shaft friction and end bearing.
