Abstract: An 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.
