Soil properties: \$ = 38, very dense sand, some silt = 130 pcf, Ym = 128 pel D =25' y,,, Assume FS = 3, GWT 5' ( = 5B) below tip of pile 1. Determine critical depth: dense sand, use 20 pile diameters = 20 (1 ') = 20' 2. Assume K = 1.75 (reduce because sand is silty) 3. Determine pile/soil friction: concrete pile so tano = 0.45 4. Draw effective vertical stress and unit side shear distributions along pile: (note stress is constant below Dol cr'", = a f5 = K cr'v tan 0 = 0 D = 25' ?O ('21) ____ L ..- (.1 S(;lstO) (O,I,f) 201' pr.{ )<(,0". :. 5.
