Abstract

It is well known that the behaviour of foundation piles is markedly affected by technological factors, particularly for cast in situ piles. Some examples are presented to substantiate this statement, concerning recent experiences with large diameter bored piles and continuous flight auger piles in the pyroclastic soils of eastern Naples area.

A pre-loading cell, aimed at improving the load-settlement behaviour of the base of large diameter bored piles, is then described.

Finally, some data and comments are presented about loading tests on instrumented piles and non destructive integrity test methods, such as sonic logging and mechanical admittance tests.
