THE EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT OF PILING TESTING ON PROBLEMATICAL SOIL GROUND OF ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN
International Journal for Computational Civil and Structural Engineering
At the present time, in Astana city is going on works by construction public transport system LRT (Light Railway Transport). LRT is an overhead road with two railway lines. The first stage of construction is including construction of overhead road (bridge) with 22,4 km length and 18 stations. The foundation of bridge is the bored piles with cross-section 1.0HL5 m and length 8-КЗ 5 m. In these conditions, very important to control integrity of concrete body of each bored piles. For checking
... . For checking integrity- applying two methods - Low Strain Method and Cross-Hole Sonic Logging. The aim of this paper is to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method using the examples of a real application. The article presents loading tests of large diameter and deep boring piles on the construction site in new capital city of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Finally, some recommendations for testmg methods suitable for problematical ground conditions of Kazakhstan are introduced. Traditionally, pile load tests in Kazakhstan are carried out using static loading test methods. Static pile loading test is the most reliable method to obtain the load-settlement relation of piles. Results of static pile tests using the static compression loading test (by ASTM). static loading test (by GOST) and bi-direction static loading test (by ASTM) methods are presented in this paper. Experienced bored piles with length of 31.5 m. diameter 1000 mm. Hereafter the results of underground testmg by the piles with the methods of vertical static tests of SLT. BDSLT and SCLT are presented, which had been made on Expo 2017 projects, buildings of Pavilion m Astana. Kazakhstan.
