Investigation of the operation of pile foundations with dynamic loads

Static and dynamic tests of two single piles and a cluster of four piles with a high foundation mat were conducted in full-scale conditions. A procedure is suggested for processing tests to evaluate the seismic stability of pile foundations, and coefficients are derived for reduction of the load on piles, which fully agree with analogous seismic coefficients of the conditions of operation given in Construction Standard and Rules and make it possible to choose the optimum variant of a pile foundation.
