The importance of vibration problems induced by pile driving is addressed and guidelines for establishing limiting vibration levels with respect to buildings with different foundation conditions are presented. Basic concepts of pile dynamics and stress-wave measurements, which were developed for the determination of driving resistance and bearing capacity of impact-driven piles, provide important information about ground vibration induced by pile penetration. Dynamic hammer properties and… Expand
Engineering Assessment of Ground Vibrations Caused by Impact Pile Driving
Ground vibrations are an important design consideration for piles driven by impact hammers. The first task is to determine allowable vibration levels; the second task is to predict the intensity ofExpand
