Example 13.4 Design of continuous flight auger piles from cone tests Verification of strength (limit state GEO) Design situation Consider the design of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles for a site in Twickenham, London. Ground conditions at the site comprise dense, becoming loose gravelly, SAND. Cone penetration tests have been perfomed at the site to a depth of 8m. (Data courtesy CL Associates.)
