Figure 1: Worked example E6: Design of a compression pile. A structure is to be supported on bored piles. Each pile supports a single column with vertical characteristic loading of Gk=1000kN (permanent) and Qk=300kN (variable). Based on this load information and the soil properties shown, it is necessary to calculate the required toe level of a 0.6m diameter bored pile.
