The presentation includes a review of Examples 5 and 6 of Volume 3 of the SSDM. Example 5 pertains to the design of a cast-in-place concrete pile foundation. The foundation addressed in the example is a post-tensioned concrete parking garage. However, the pile design methodology is applicable to any building. The presentation includes recommendations for coordination with the geotechnical engineer, determination of the most cost-effective geotechnical pile capacity for the project, determining the number of piles at each location, geotechnical and structural design of the piles to resist vertical and lateral loading, distribution of base shear, review of applicable Code requirements and recommendations for detailing. Example 6 explores three approaches to designing pile foundations that support a moment-resisting frame: stiff grade beam designed for amplified loads; flexible grade beam with ductile detailing; and individual caps resisting moments through pile axial loads.
