USE OF THE VIBRATORY METHOD FOR SINKING PILES AND PILE SHELLS IN BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION IN THE USSR

SEVERAL VIBRATORY DRIVERS ARE DESCRIBED WHICH WERE USED IN THE USSR IN BRIDGE GUILDING PRACTICE FOR SINKING PILES AND PILE SHELLS. ONE VIBRATORY DRIVER DESCRIBED IS BASED ON THE MECHANISM OF SINGLE FREQUENCY ACTION AND USES AN ELECTROMETER. THIS DRIVER IS USED IN BRIDGE BUILDING PRACTICE FOR SINKING INTO THE SOFT PILES, THE CRITICAL RESISTANCE OF WHICH DOES NOT EXCEED 100 METRIC TONS. THE SINKING OF REINFORCED CONCRETE PILES BY THIS VIBRATORY DRIVER WITH THE HELP OF A PILE DRIVING FRAME IS SHOWN, AND WITH THE HELP OF A CRANE. A SMALLER VIBRATORY DRIVER IS DESIGNED FOR SINKING INTO THE SOIL LIGHT PILES, THE CRITICAL RESISTANCE OF WHICH DOES NOT EXCEED 50 METRIC TONS. IT IS ALSO USED FOR SINKING STEEL AND WOODEN SHEET PILES. A VIBRATORY DRIVER IS SHOWN WHICH IS DESIGNED TO SINK INTO THE GROUND PILES WITH A CRITICAL LOAD UP TO 200 METRIC TONS, AND ALSO FOR THE SINKING OF PILE SHELLS WEIGHING UP TO 15 TONS. A VIBRATORY DRIVER IS SHOWN WHICH IS INTENDED FOR SINKING INTO THE GROUND REINFORCED CONCRETE SHELLS UP TO 5 METERS OUTER DIAMETER TO A DEPTH OF 30 METERS. IT IS A LOW- FREQUENCY 8-SHAFT VIBRATOR OF 2-FREQUENCY ACTION. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS DRIVER PERMITS SEPARATE CONTROL OF THE FREQUENCY OF VIBRATION, THE MAGNITUDE OF THE EXCITING FORCE AND OF THE LOAD MOMENT.
