Abstract

To study the behavior of thick pile caps, five 1/10 scale models of nine-pile caps with different heights, reinforcement ratios and forms of reinforcement layout were loaded on vertical loads. The experiment results indicated that the failures of all the five models are resulted from punching shear (two-way shear). It was found that the strut-and-tie model is also suitable for the designing of pile caps with nine piles and more rational than the traditional shear design procedures, and the longitudinal reinforcement should be concentrated over the piles to form reinforced tie.
