Unformatted text preview: the clay is 20kN/m 3 . The water table is 0.5 meter below the ground surface. The undrained shear strength of the soil varies with depth, as shown in the diagraph. 3. A single pile is designed to carry the load of 1200 kN in a deep soft clay foundation. The diameter of the pile selected is 1.2 meter. The soil is uniform with γ sat = 20 kN/M 3 , and its undrained shear strength is 60 kPa. A safety factor of 2.5 is required. Calculate the length of pile required.
