Vibration transfer during vibratory sheet pile driving: a full-scale field test
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, ICEGE , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
Vibration transfer between sheet pile and soil during vibratory driving is commonly modelled using theory developed for impact pile driving. However, field observations and previous literature show that a driven sheet pile vibrates both vertically and horizontally. A transfer of vibrations to adjoining sheet piles in the sheet pile wall can also be observed. Results from a full-scale field test are presented showing that driven sheet piles vibrate both horizontally as well as vertically and that vibrations to a high degree are transferred to adjoining sheet piles. Based on the results it is suggested that the common vibration transfer model is modified to better capture the real behavior of the driven sheet pile and the adjoining sheet pile wall.
