The CRSI Drilled Pier Design Guide has been developed to provide the practicing engineer with a detailed overview of drilled pier design, detailing, and analysis methodologies that represent the current state of practice in the industry and meet the latest codes and standards including the 2015 International Building Code (IBC), ACI 318-14 (ACI) and the 2014 AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (AASHTO). Several complete building and bridge application design examples for drilled piers to resist the combined effects of vertical loading, lateral loading, and overturning are included in this Guide. Tabulated designs are provided for commonly assumed soil profiles and a wide range of vertical loading, lateral loading, and overturning conditions. Additional design aids are provided throughout the text and access to design software is made available to expedite the design process and to validate hand calculations.
