Abstract

Pine pile is an ancient technology applied in soft ground improvement for more than 1000 years. With the rise of many high-rise buildings, many types of modern mechanized-construction pile are widely developed and applied, for example, steel pile, precast concrete pile, sand pile, gravel pile are widely used instead of timer piles. Yet, in some special conditions, timber piles have a certain advantages due to its environment friendly characteristics, obvious economic benefits and suitability. To overcome the weakness of the traditional pine-pile technology and expand its application in engineering practice, a drained-timber pile technology was put forward, the structure of the drained timber pile was developed in laboratory. The reduced scale mode tests ware carried out to verify the effectiveness of the drained-timber bolt. The test results revealed that under the same loading and consolidation time, the drained-timber bolt can obviously increase the degree of consolidation comparing with traditional timber pile. It can be expected that the drained-timber pile has a good application prospect in the pretreatment of super soft foundation.
