Abstract: This paper describes the development of a model instrumented open-ended (pipe) pile. The importance of model geometry and separating the shaft, annular and plug load, and horizontal effective stresses is discussed. A detailed description of the construction of the twin-walled open-ended pile is presented. Particular attention was given to protecting the fragile instrumentation from the rigours of installation and the effects of water ingress. Calibration procedures, which were used to verify the instrument reliability, are also discussed. The final section describes field tests conducted in both loose sand and medium-dense sand deposits, which are used to validate the instrument performance.
