Aspects of Ground Vibrations due to Pile and Sheet Pile Driving
2015 (English)In: The Electronic journal of geotechnical engineering, ISSN 1089-3032, E-ISSN 1089-3032, Vol. 20, no 19, 11161-11176 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Vibrations due to pile and sheet pile driving are part of a complex process involving several factors that influence both vibration magnitude and frequency. Better understanding and prediction of the vibrations generated will greatly benefit the civil engineering practice as well as the construction industry. An important component in understanding vibrations due to pile driving is to comprehend and understand working procedures and the influence of different factors. The objective is to present and discuss factors and working procedures that influence vibrations caused by pile driving, based on three current field tests and formerly presented experience from literature. It is concluded that the factors have the highest impact on ground vibrations due to pile driving are the geotechnical conditions, the vibration generated at the source, the distance from the source and the installation method.
