JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
When helical piles are embedded in soils of Classes 6 and 7, a buckling analysis shall be performed by a recognized method. The allowable axial compressive load shall be not more than two-thirds of the calculated load-causing buckling. The additional bending moments due to bracket assemblies, structural eccentric forces and coupling rigidity shall be appropriately included in the buckling analysis.
