The purpose of this course is to develop a state-of-the-practice manual for the design and construction of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles, including those piles commonly referred to as augured cast-in-place (ACIP) piles, drilled displacement (DD) piles, and screw piles. An Allowable Stress Design (ASD) procedure is presented in this document as resistance (strength reduction) factors have not yet been calibrated for CFA piles for a Load Resistance Factored Design (LRFD) approach. The intended audience for this document is engineers and construction specialists involved in the design, construction, and contracting of foundation elements for transportation structures.
By the end of this course the engineers and geologists and construction specialist would have a better understanding of design and construction of continues auger piles.
