Abstract

In this paper geotechnical design is addressed and particularly Static and Seismic Pile Foundation Design by Load Tests and Calculation Models. Within this framework Eurocode 7 – Geotechnical Design and Eurocode 8 – Design of Structures for Earthquake Resistance are introduced. The ultimate limit states and the serviceability limit states are discussed. Potential liquefiable soils and remedial measures are addressed. Two case histories related with pile design, namely the New Tagus bridge foundation design and the pile design and liquefaction potential evaluation of Leziria bridge foundations based in Eurocodes 7 and 8, are presented. Some conclusions are drawn.
