Explicit calculation of effective lengths for friction piles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Explicit equations for computing the possible losses of friction capacity for flexible piles and the effective pile lengths are proposed and discussed. Pertinent graphs and recommendations for pile design practice are also presented.
