Static load tests were conducted after the excess pore pressure generated by the installation of 6 m long driven concrete piles were fully equalised. These tests allowed the time-capacity aging profile to be established. A normalised capacity-time trend established for the case history is seen to be consistent with the response observed from a wider database of pile tests in clay compiled from the literature. A simple reliability based design example is provided to highlight the positive impact that pile aging could have for industrial practice.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Society of Civil Engineers||Copyright (published version):||2013 American Society of Civil Engineers||Keywords:||Pile Aging;Cohesive Soils;Soils;Pile;Geotechnical||DOI:||10.1061/(ASCE)GT.1943-5606.0000884||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
