Design and Construction of Large-diameter Bored Piles - 8th October 2018

    This popular CPD course has been continuously updated to include recent developments in Hong Kong and Macau. The design of large-diameter bored piles appears to be relatively simple as the allowable bearing capacity and resistance to lateral earth pressure are limited by the presumptive values stated in Code of Practice for Foundations 2017 and related government publications. However, many common design errors occur from a practical viewpoint, rendering construction very difficult, if not impossible. Moreover, there are many practical problems confronting geotechnical engineers and contractors on site. This one-day continuing professional development (CPD) short course is developed to illustrate to young engineers who are interested in geotechnical engineering some practical aspects in the design and construction of large-diameter bored piles including:
  • Types and definitions of large-diameter bored piles

  • Design philosophy of bored piles

  • Common design errors from a practical viewpoint

  • Detailed construction procedures of large-diameter bored piles

  • Construction equipment for large-diameter bored pile

  • Integrity testing of large-diameter bored piles

  • Difficulties in large-diameter bored pile construction

  • Pitfalls in site supervision for large-diameter bored pile construction

  • Full-scale pile load tests

  • New developments in large-diameter bored piles

More than 600 slides on various aspects of local large-diameter bored pile construction will be shown for illustration and detailed discussion. The course has been substantially revised to include recent projects in Hong Kong and Macau.
