This dissertation paper is based on the development of the equations used for the design of CFA piles and more specific on granular soils. Tests that may be used in obtaining the required geotechnical parameters used in the designing of the equations are also reviewed. The tests based approaches are to allow contractors and designers to come up the best piles required for a certain project due to the parameters identified. Assumptions and errors resulting in the equation design are also covered. Present. Step-by-step method formulations of equations that are used for designing CFA piles are presented.
Key WordsCFA, drilled displacement piles, CPT, PDT and testing.
