AB - © 2007 Society of Underwater Technology. All rights reserved. This paper reviews the research and debates that have led to substantial changes being made in 2007 to the API-RP2A recommendations for assessing offshore driven pile axial capacity. The reasons for the conventional Main Text method's large scatter, strong skewing and significant biases are explored, with particular emphasis on piles driven in sand. Recent alternative design frameworks are reviewed critically and conclusions are drawn regarding their practical application. Comments are also made on predicting load-displacement behaviour, assessing the impact of load cycling, group interaction effects and aspects of foundation disturbance by drilling.
