Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 1

The maximum load which can be carried by a pile is defined as its __________

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 1

The ultimate load carrying capacity, or ultimate bearing resistance or ultimate bearing capacity Q up is defined as the maximum load which can be carried by a pile and at which the pile continues to sink without further increase of load.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 3

When a pile hammer hits the pile, the total driving energy is equal to _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 3

When a pile hammer hits the pile, the total driving energy is equal to the weight of hammer the height of drop or stroke.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 4

Dynamic formula does not indicate about _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 4

A disadvantage of a dynamic formula is that it gives no indication about the reduced bearing future settlement or temporary changes in soil structure.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 5

In dynamic formulae what are the energy losses, that is not accounted?

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 5

In dynamic formulae, the energy loss due to vibrations, heat and damage to dolly or packaging are not taken into account.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 6

The static formula is based on the assumption that the ultimate bearing capacity Qup is equal to ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 6

The static formulae are based on the assumption that the ultimate bearing capacity Qup of a pile is the sum of the total ultimate skin friction Rf and total ultimate point or end bearing resistance Rp:
Qup = Rf + Rp.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 7

The greater objection to any of the pile driving formulae is _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 7

The greater objection to any of the pile driving formulae is the uncertainty about the relationship between the dynamic and static resistance to soil.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 8

The dynamic formula is valueless for which of the following type of soil?

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 8

For clays, the dynamic formulae are valueless because the skin friction developed in clay during driving is very much less than which occurs after a period of time.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 9

Dynamic formulae are best suited for _________ type of soil.

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 9

Dynamic formulae are best suited to coarse grained soils for which the shear strength is independent of rate of loading.

Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 10

Which of the following are some of the commonly used dynamic formula?

Detailed Solution for Test: Load Carrying Capacity of Piles - Question 10

The Engineers News formula as proposed by Wellington and Hiley’s formula given by the original expression of Hiley are the commonly used dynamic formula.
