    The rules of design for vertically and horizontally loaded piles on the basis of pressuremeter test results are reviewed. The pressuremeter test considered is the one where the pressuremeter probe is inserted in a prebored hole. The rules are then evaluated on the basis of a series of well-documented vertical and horizontal pile load tests. The accuracy of the predictions is shown and recommendations are made for future use.
