What is pile capacity?

Pile Capacity is the maximum load which a pile can carry without failure or excessive settlement of the ground. The bearing capacity of a pile depends primarily on 3 factors as given below,Type of soil through which pile is embedded, Method of pile installation, Pile dimension (cross section & length of pile).

How to Calculate Pile Capacity?

Pile Capacity calculator uses Pile Capacity=Shaft Resistance+Toe Resistance to calculate the Pile Capacity, The Pile Capacity formula is defined as the sum of shaft resistance and the toe resistance. Pile Capacity is the maximum load which a pile can carry without failure. Pile Capacity and is denoted by Q u symbol.

How to calculate Pile Capacity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Pile Capacity, enter Shaft Resistance (Q su) and Toe Resistance (Q bu) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Pile Capacity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 20 = 10000+10000.

FAQ

What is Pile Capacity?
The Pile Capacity formula is defined as the sum of shaft resistance and the toe resistance. Pile Capacity is the maximum load which a pile can carry without failure and is represented as Q u=Q su+Q bu or Pile Capacity=Shaft Resistance+Toe Resistance. Shaft Resistance is the load resisted by a pile's shaft and Toe Resistance is the load resisted by the toe of a pile.
How to calculate Pile Capacity?
The Pile Capacity formula is defined as the sum of shaft resistance and the toe resistance. Pile Capacity is the maximum load which a pile can carry without failure is calculated using Pile Capacity=Shaft Resistance+Toe Resistance. To calculate Pile Capacity, you need Shaft Resistance (Q su) and Toe Resistance (Q bu). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Shaft Resistance and Toe Resistance and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
