Abstract

A number of field studies suggest that the axial capacity of driven piles in sand increases with time. Field test programmes were performed by a number of research groups to examine this aspect of pile behaviour. The paper presents a summary of the findings from these experiments. It also reviews laboratory pile and element testing performed to provide further insights into the mechanisms controlling pile ageing.
