<h4>A Simplified Approach to the Analysis of Piling Systems</h4>

A Simplified Approach to the Analysis of Piling Systems

The paper describes a simplified hand method for the analysis of piling systems. The method is based on the stiffness approach and the analysis reduces to the setting up and solution of three simultaneous equations for any pile system. Bending stiffness of piles can be included or neglected, and the rake or number of piles in the group does not complicate the solution. Piles are assumed built in at the pile cap and rigidly fixed or pinned at the base. The method is demonstrated on a five pile group with bending stiffness of piles neglected and included in the analyses. A method for estimating bending stresses in piles is proposed. F. Sawko

Sixtieth Anniversary 1908 - 1968. A message from the President

In retrospect it can be seen that the celebration of our Golden Jubilee in 1958 set the final seal upon the Institution as a chartered body of eminence and importance; it was in effect the end of the beginning.
