KEYNOTE: Axial Capacity of Drilled Foundations in Soft Rocks and Intermediate Geomaterials - Presentation Notes
Michael W. O'Neill

This presentation addresses some of the problems encountered in estimating the capcity of drilled shafts and augered, cast-in-place piles in soft rock. Methods to quantify side and base resistance are suggested. However, the methods that are described should always be verified locally by performing load tests.
