The results of static testing of the pile and comparative results of analytical and numerical calculations for the experimental deep pile (length 65 m, diameter 1.2 m) under the high-rise building, designed in the area of a large thickness of weak soils, are presented in the paper. At the same construction site, an experimental barrette pile of rectangular crosssection with a size of 3.3 x 1.1 and a length of 65 m with the location of the base in solid Proterozoic clays was made. This pile was

In the first stage, a standard test of the entire experimental barrette pile in the top-down direction was conducted; in the second, after reaching the maximum possible load, the tests were carried out using the "O-cells" located at a depth of 50 m in the thickness of solid clays and transmitting the load in two directions (up and down). A General assessment of the bearing capacity of the barrette pile obtained by three methods is given.
