This paper presents field measurements of the shaft shear stress and the horizontal stress made during the installation of a 73mm diameter instrumented pile in a heavily over-consolidated dense sand deposit. The measurements are compared with Cone Penetration Test (CPT) measurements to investigate the causes of friction fatigue on displacement piles in sand. Copyright ASCE 2006.
