Discussion on The Design and Construction of Bush Lane House by M.J. Eatherley

Dr. Eastwood (Past President) : A matter of some interest is the behaviour of the inclined piles. Some of the piles are vertical and some inclined and all are attached to a fairly rigid frame at ground level. Thus the tops of the piles will move down bodily in a vertical direction under load, whilst the toes of the piles will move in the direction at which the pile is inclined. The toes of the piles will tend to move apart and the piles will bend. With the amount of settlement which is expected could this bending be sufficient to produce cracking of the piles?
