Abstract

Several methods for increasing the tip resistances of embedded piles have been developed with a focus on reducing the cost and period of construction. The embedded piles with different tip plates were installed and the tip resistances of test piles were estimated through dynamic pile tests. The experimental results showed that the tip resistance of the pile with an inclined plate is larger than that of the pile without a tip plate. In addition, the tip resistance increases with an increase in the inclination angle of the tip plate. This study demonstrates that the tip resistance of embedded piles depends on the shape of the pile tip, and the tip resistance of piles can be maximized by controlling the inclination angle of the tip plate.
