The Medical Field Services School at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Tex., was constructed in 1970 and 1971. The performance of the structure was monitored using free-standing bench marks, grade-beam bench marks, and strain gages in three drilled piers. Performance of the structure was predicted using five analysis techniques presented in the literature. Actual and predicted performances were compared. Based on these results, the five analysis techniques are compared in their ability to predict the performance of a drilled pier foundation. Swelling soils.
