Chalk exhibits a viscous behavior depending on time and it presents a noticeable creep under constant load. Consequently, piles founded in chalk media may have their design greatly affected. However, the different standards of the design of deep foundations don’t take into account this viscous behavior and its effect on the pile settlement in the long term. This paper deals with the case of piles under monotonic axial loads in chalk. Two methods of predicting pile settlement are developed: the transfer curves method tz, taking into account the viscosity, and the macroelement technique.
