Six Statnamic load tests were conducted on drilled shafts socketed into rock for a building project in Taipei, Taiwan. Two of the six shafts were also tested under the conventional static loads. Results of the Statnamic and static load tests are presented in this paper. The Statnamic test results are interpreted using the traditional unloading point method, as well as a new procedure, the segmental unloading point method. For the long shaft cases examined, the segmental unloading point method is found to yield a more reasonable prediction of the static load-displacement response than does the unloading point method.
