The present work is concerned with the effect of soil spatial variability on estimating the ultimate soil resistance of floating axially loaded piles from point measurements of soil properties along the pile. The ultimate limit state is considered. In particular, closed form formulae for (i) determining the optimal sampling depth for minimizing statistical uncertainty and (ii) the optimal—minimum required—safety factor for a desired failure probability level are derived. A dimensionless
