extensive pile test program has been conducted on precast concrete piles and
steel piles at the Rotterdam Harbour. The goal of the research project was
to prove that higher limit values for toe and shaft resistance could be
applied than prescribed in a new Dutch code. An additional goal was the
comparison of static and dynamic piles tests. Static load tests (SLT),
Statnamic load tests (STN) and dynamic load tests (DLT) have been performed.
Soil investigation data and pile design will be discussed. The paper
extensively describes the comparison between load-settlement behaviour for
STN and SLT.
