Reference for Design of Piles Caps

  • Conor Daly


    I am a designer in the US looking to design pile caps for the first time – it seems ACI doesn’t go into a great deal of explanation on this. Do you have any recommendations for further design Guidance?

    Hi GradEngConor,

    Yes what you’re missing is CRSI – it walks through the flexure and several shear checks at different planes through the pile cap. See image below extracted from CRSI manual. The image below I extracted from CRSI shows critical sections for shear checks.



    Yes, CRSI Timothy Hays Document is really helpful.

    Also see the Struct Mag. This is a good reference.
