Abstract:
This paper summarizes the seismic aspects of the recently updated ACI 543 Committee document on design, manufacture, and installation of concrete piles. Although re-approved in 2005, the original Committee document was last updated in 2000. As part of the latest update, an entire Chapter on seismic design and detailing was prepared. The current state of practice regarding seismic ground motion determination and seismic soil–structure interaction was reviewed so as to be incorporated into the Committee document. In addition to summarizing the key seismic aspects of the Committee document, the paper will highlight the changes from previous versions.
