Model pile raft system was pushed in the consolidated clay bed until the raft touched the organic clay top. It was ensured that while performing tests on piled raft and individual raft, there was a full contact between the soil layer and the raft. The settlement was measured using two dial gauges having a 50 mm range with 0.01 mm sensitivity. They were placed diagonally opposite on the model raft to get average settlement at the center of raft. Loads were applied in gradual increment and settlements were recorded till there was no appreciable change in settlement for a particular load increment. Then the next load increment was applied. The tests were continued until the settlement was more than 10% of width of corresponding raft.

V. Results And Discussions The Figs. 5 to 10 shows the load settlement curves with different number of piles and also the comparasion between different thicknesses for 100 and 200 mm width flexible and rigid piled rafts with 1, 4 and 9 piles respectively. It is observed from these figures that the load carrying capacity of the piles increase as the size of the raft increase. The load vs. settlement curve for free standing piles with different area ratio (Rarea).

Area ratio (Rarea) is defined as ratio of area of piles to area of raft expressed as percentage. It is observed that the piles with low area ratio settles faster than the with high area ratio. From the results of this study, the following conclusions can be drawn. It was obtained that the settlement in the pile group standing alone are fast in settling in the beginning and reduced after some loading, but in case of raft alone slow settlement is observed.

The piles take a major portion of total load at the initial stage of loading, but after yielding, a considerable portion of total load is transferred by the raft. The settlement reduction ratio (immediate) of a piled raft decreases with increase in pile to raft area ratio as well as pile slenderness ratio. When the pile to raft area ratio decreases the settlement reduces, i.e. in the thesis pile to raft area ratio ranging from 28.26, 12.56, 7.07, 3.14 and 0.79, the settlement reducing is decreasing from 28.26 p-r ratio to 0.79 p-r ratio.

VI. Conclusions

From the results of this study, the following conclusions can be drawn:

It has been observed that piled raft foundation concept has significant advantages in comparison to conventional foundation for some soft clay. The ultimate bearing capacity of Piles will be increased and the settlement of Pile is reduced as the diameter of Pile increases. It is obtained that the settlement in the pile group standing alone are fast in settling in the beginning and reduced after some loading, but in case of raft alone slow settlement is observed. The piles take a major portion of total load at the initial stage of loading, but after yielding, a considerable portion of total load is transferred by the raft. The settlement of raft depends on raft thickness; increasing the thickness of the raft the settlement reduction can be noticed. The settlement reduction ratio (immediate) of a piled raft decreases with increase in pile to raft area ratio as well as pile slenderness ratio.

This analysis may be useful in design of piled raft in soft consolidating, organic, clayey soil. The settlement reduces when the slenderness ratio s/d reduces. The increases in number of piles in a piled raft foundation results in increase in ultimate bearing capacity and decrease in settlement.
