Abstract

The process of sheetpile-driving is investigated. Emphasis is placed on the influence of actual pile driving depth and the transfer of pile driving energy from the sheetpile to the surrounding soil. The propagation of waves caused by the pile driving and its effects on the soil and structures founded in and on the ground are discussed. Horizontal and vertical displacements of structures on the surface as well as in half space (e.g. buried pipelines) are presented. The results were obtained using the finite element method. The central point of these first studies is to show the effect of sheetpiling works performed in the nearfield of some structures on the displacement behaviour of these structures.

Numerical Study on the Behaviour of Structures in the Near-Field of Sheet-Pile Driving Work

San Diego, California

The process of sheetpile-driving is investigated. Emphasis is placed on the influence of actual pile driving depth and the transfer of pile driving energy from the sheetpile to the surrounding soil. The propagation of waves caused by the pile driving and its effects on the soil and structures founded in and on the ground are discussed. Horizontal and vertical displacements of structures on the surface as well as in half space (e.g. buried pipelines) are presented. The results were obtained using the finite element method. The central point of these first studies is to show the effect of sheetpiling works performed in the nearfield of some structures on the displacement behaviour of these structures.
