27 CHAPTER 4 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PILE DATABASE General Information and History The University of Florida in conjunction with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has developed a database on driven piles inside and outside the state of Florida. This database, called PILEUF, is the result of many years of research to predict pile capacity from static and dynamic means. Originally, the database was on a Lotus 123 spreadsheet format. However, the database information was transferred to a Microsoft Excel format for this research. By doing the latter, the automatic tasks (macros) or links from Lotus 123 were eliminated. Also, new pile information was obtained from the original geotechnical reports, as well as new cases studied. Currently, there are 242 piles in the database. Out of these 242 piles, 198 are concrete piles (both square and round), 21 are steel pipe piles, and 9 are H-Piles. Table 4- 1 summarizes the number of piles, classification and diameter for the Florida cases while Table 4-2 summarizes the same information for the Non Florida cases.
