Abstract

This paper reviews and discusses methods currently available to assess the vibro-driveability of piles based on a comparison between calculations and experimental observations. The experimental results come from databases collected in Belgium and in The Netherlands, as well as from full scale tests campaigns conducted in Belgium and in France. Discrepancies between modeling assumptions and actual observations are highlighted, and some suggestions are made to improve the performance of design methods.

Vibrodriving Prediction Models vs. Experimental Results

San Diego, California

This paper reviews and discusses methods currently available to assess the vibro-driveability of piles based on a comparison between calculations and experimental observations. The experimental results come from databases collected in Belgium and in The Netherlands, as well as from full scale tests campaigns conducted in Belgium and in France. Discrepancies between modeling assumptions and actual observations are highlighted, and some suggestions are made to improve the performance of design methods.
