Thesis Name

Shaft end's effects on installation and capacity of Helical Piles

Thesis Abstract

This research work will concentrate on studying the impact of shaft's end configuration on installation torque and pile capacities as detailed earlier. The anticipated outcome, a better design in terms of higher load carrying/sustaining capabilities and lesser magnitudes of torque required to install these piles will see a substantial growth in their applications. To elaborate on the torque aspect, a considerably lesser force will manifest through increasingly economic and portable installation

Why my research is important/Impacts

It will have an overarching impact on CQU ranking, proving beneficial to CQU's research stakeholders and impacting the industry, as the Gladstone and Central Queensland Region has potential for both onshore and offshore applications.
