Certain buildings limit displacement of pile foundation with relatively small value so as not to cause damage to the structure. Loading test directly in the field requires a very high cost. To overcome this problem, it can be approached with a more economical cost, that is to move it into a certain scale models. The method used is to create a media model as a test box testing, by simulating the actual model in the form of a scale model. This method is fairly cheap and efficient as it can be used for various models and can be used repeatedly. The study was conducted using models of reduced scale single pile foundation made of concrete with a length of 0.2 m, 0.3 m, 0.4 m and each diameter of 0.02 m, 0.03 m, 0.04 m. Pile model is jacked in clay soil that has been compacted in a box and then given a tensile load test referring to ASTM D3689-07 procedure E (Constant Rate of Uplift Test). Mobilization of uplift resistance is determined from the pile frictional resistance force and displacement of the pile. The results showed that the frictional resistance value is reduced to the value at a particular displacement or at critical displacement pile.
