Foundations are important parts of many construction projects. Piles or piled foundations are used in the cases where the structural loads cannot be carried safely with the shallow foundations. In this study, it is aimed to investigate and compare the bearing capacity and settlement of rafts and piled raft foundations. For this purpose, a test setup was formed and loading tests were carried out on a model raft and a model piled foundation. The results can serve as a reference for the preliminary assessment of bearing capacity and settlement of driven piles embedded in sandy soils without conducting expensive and time-consuming field trials.
