<p>Piles are used to transfer loads to a deeper bearing strata, support structures on soil too weak for spread footings and/or protect against scour. Pile driving is unique in the construction industry, in that the machinery used to install the product is ...

The paper reports the measurements and analyses and indicates the method for determining the residual load, the strain - dependent modulus of the test piles and the actual load distribution in the test piles.

<p>The Foundation Manual is intended to provide the field engineer with information that may be of some assistance in solving foundation problems and in making engineering decisions.</p> <p><br />Although the field engineer is required to make engineering ...

This study focused on an evaluation of static and dynamic load test data and a case study of significant movement of an adjacent building during pile driving.
Reference: PUBLICATION NO. FHWA-HRT-05-159
<p>Tapered driven piles have been the deep foundation of choice ever since construction of and at the well-known John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFKIA) in New York City began in the late 1940s. Timber piles were used primarily for many decades but various ...

In this study, two case histories of deep foundations are discussed, including driven piles and drilled shafts.

This report presents the results of a study to assess the lessons learned from pile driving on the CA/T. This study focused on an evaluation of static and dynamic load test data and a case study of significant movement of an adjacent building during pile driving. ...

The advent of the wave equation analysis in the mid-seventies was a quantum leap in foundation engineering. For the first time, a design could consider the entire pile driving system, such as wave propagation characteristics, velocity dependent aspects (damping), ...

Extraction for visual inspection showed that the failed piles were bent and had deformed pile shoes. In areas of steeply sloping bedrock and for replacement piles, an alternative shoe, the Scanpile Herkules rock shoe, was employed. This pile shoe proved to ...
