Beskrivelse

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, retaininga 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. --
