Unformatted text preview: Soil: clay cu = 1 tsf = 0 m = 110 pcf D s Clay C u = 45 kN/m 2 Clay C u = 74 kN/m 2 6 m 5 m 4. The pile group in problem 3 will carry a design column load of 1500 tons. It will also be subjected to a horizontal ship impact load of 300 tons at a height of 15 ft above the bottom of the footing and parallel to the long axis of the group. What are the minimum and maximum individual pile loads caused by the moment due to the horizontal load and will they be safe? Assume an ultimate axial compression capacity of 275 tons and an ultimate axial tension capacity of 24 tons. This is an extreme load condition and the pile capacity will be verified by static load test....
