Question 2: The plan of a group pile is shown in Figure 1. Assume that the piles are embedded in a saturated homogeneous clay having a \( c_{u}=90 \mathrm{kPa} \). Given: diameter of piles \( =500 \mathrm{~mm} \), center-to-center spacing of piles \( (d)=1.5 \mathrm{~m} \), and length of piles \( =20 \mathrm{~m} \). Find the allowable load-carrying capacity of the pile group. Use FS \( =3 \) and \( \alpha \) method to calculate the skin friction. Figure 1 The plan of group pile

In the given question, we have to determine the allowable load carrying capacity of the pile group. Therefore lets first have a look on what does allo
