53 Davisson capacity on the horizontal axis. On each graph, the number of cases for each dynamic method, the mean (or bias factor, λ R ), and standard deviation, σ R , and the ratio of measured to predicted capacity is presented. Appendices A throughout H present the resulting plots for all the methods studied, while Tables 6-7 and 6-8 summarize the number of cases, mean and standard deviation. In addition to the mean and standard deviation, a lognormal probability density function was computed for each method. To assess the latter, Equations 5-14 to 5-16 were used. Figures 6-3 and 6-4 present a summary of the lognormal probability density functions for the eight dynamic methods at EOD and BOR respectively. The lognormal probability density function is used for a resistance distribution of a single pile. However, if it is used for the ratio of measured to predicted capacity, it is a good indicator of how good the method is to reach a desired capacity. For example, by inspection it can be
