Davisson Capacity vs. PDA Rmax Capacity (used in Method 1) The total dynamic capacity was obtained using the Case solution for time T 1 located at the maximum force entering the pile. Then, the tip and the tip to skin ratio were calculated using Equations 7-2 and 7-3. With this tip to skin ratio and the PDA R max the static skin and tip capacity for the Method 1 were calculated. A series of figures show the results from the three methods studied, i.e. CAPWAP, Method 1 (using PDA Rmax), and the suggested method in comparison with the measured capacity. Figure 7-5 shows the Davisson’s capacity versus the estimated capacity by the suggested method. The CAPWAP estimated capacity versus the Davisson’s capacity is presented in Figure 7-6, and the same relation for the PDA estimated capacity is presented in Figure 7-7.
