Calculation of capacity of pile: (refer ANNEX - B 2 of IS 2911 part 1 / sec-2 : 2010)

Input data for Pile capacity


1 Dia of pile = 1.2 m
2 Bottom of Pile cap level = -1.5
3 Scour level = -12
4 Founding Level = -19.5 (I Have assumed more length since you
5 Depth of pile from scour level = 7.5 m terminated the bore length as 15.0m)
6 Factor of safety = 2.5
7 No of layers = 4
8 Depth of 1st layer = 1.5 m
9 Depth of 2nd layer = 1.5 m
9 Depth of 3rd layer = 1.5 m
10 Depth of 4th layer = 3m

1 Calculation of Skin friction


(as per ANNEX - B 2 of IS - 2911 (part 1/sec 2)-2010)

Qs = αi Ci Asi
Where
= Coefficient of earth pressure

α = Adhesion factor for the ith layer depending on


Consistency of soil

Ci = Average Cohesion for ith layer KN/m2

th
Asi = Surface area of pile shaft in the i layer, m2

Toatl Skin friction = 960.5680 KN
2 Calculation of End Bearing
Q End = Ap x Nc x Cp
Where
Ap = Cross sectional area of pile at tip in cm2

Nc = Bearing Capacity factor may be taken as 9.0

Cp = Average Cohesion at pile tip KN/m2

Cross sectional area of pile tip = 1.13 m2

Bearing Capacity factor = 9

2
Average Cohesion at pile tip KN/m = 34 KN/m2

Q End = 345.78 KN

Ultimate load carrying capacity = Ap x Nc x Cp + αi Ci Asi


= 345.78 + 960.568
= 1306.35 KN

Safe load carrying capacity = 1306.35 = 523 KN
