Forensic Evaluation of Defective Bored Piles of an Industrial Plant
Sorabh Gupta, Ravi Sundaram, Sanjay Gupta

Settlement was observed in piles installed for an industrial facility in Haryana. The paper presents results of forensic evaluation of two piles. Low strain pile integrity tests (PIT) and parallel seismic tests (PST) were used to effectively identify the defects. To physically confirm the defects, coring through the pile concrete was done. The study effectively identified the nature of the defects and the depth at which the piles had major discontinuities.
