Question
salam sir
can u give me an idea or link for design of pile cap, pile foundations for bridges on which different types of loads are applied

Answer
Dear Zain

You should design the pile like a frictionless pile. You should count only on load transfer to hard layer. I don't recommend ordinary friction pile for a bridge with dynamic loading.

For modelling you can try it like simple column under the foundation.
