Abstract

This paper offers a case of pile foundation supporting a 18-storied building rested on liquefiable sandy layers. The soil densities and the bearing capacities of piles both increased after pile driving. It is suggested that the influence of densification caused by pile driving should be considered in the case of dense spacing and large amount of piles. The formulas for sand piles are suggested for primary estimation of densification effect of pile driving.

Influence of Pile Driving on Characteristics of Liquefiable Soils

This paper offers a case of pile foundation supporting a 18-storied building rested on liquefiable sandy layers. The soil densities and the bearing capacities of piles both increased after pile driving. It is suggested that the influence of densification caused by pile driving should be considered in the case of dense spacing and large amount of piles. The formulas for sand piles are suggested for primary estimation of densification effect of pile driving.
