Abstract

As part of Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) implementation effort in Korea, reliability levels for side resistance of drilled shafts socketed in weak rock were evaluated by using bi-directional pile load test results. Because the loading direction of bi-directional pile load tests for shaft resistance is opposite to that of conventional downward static load tests, it is needed to assess the uncertainty and to evaluate the reliability of bidirectional pile load tests. A database of 24 bidirectional load test data sets and soil property tests was compiled from case histories collected from all around South Korea. The resistance bias factors for the three static design methods were evaluated by comparing the representative measured bearing capacities with the design values. Reliability analysis was conducted by two types of First-Order Reliability Method (FORM): Mean Value First-Order Second Moment (MVFOSM) and Advanced First-Order Second Moment (AFOSM).
