Some aspects of research and practice for pile design in France

Roger Frank

Abstract

This paper summarises some aspects of the methods used in France for designing pile foundations under axial and transverse loadings. These methods mostly use the results of Ménard pressuremeter (MPM) tests and concern the determination of the bearing capacity, as well as the prediction of axial and transverse displacements. The prediction of the bearing capacity from CPT results is also given. After mentioning the general context of foundation design in France, the details of these methods are described and some of their experimental background is explained. These methods are now included in the French standard for pile design (published by AFNOR, Justification of geotechnical work—National application standards for the implementation of Eurocode 7—Deep foundations, 206, 2012), fully compatible with Eurocode 7 on ‘Geotechnical design’.
