Abstract

Changes of geotecnical engineering profile are briefly mentioned based on the density of in-situ investigations and laboratory tests. Then, the method used for evaluating the vertical bearing capacity of driven piles in the actual design is presented. The applicability is also verified by comparing the predicted results with the results from the full-scale pile load tests, whose results were linked with the reduction of the safety factor for design. Finally, the significance of geotechnical investigations including in-situ and laboratory tests and full scale pile load tests are discussed in terms of the cost performance of the construction of pile foundations for supporting the connecting bridge. It is concluded that in-situ and laboratory investigation with reasonable geotechnical considerations can reduce the total cost of the construction of the bridge with pile foundations for New-Kitakyushu airport.
