THE MEASUREMENT OF PORE WATER PRESSURES ADJACENT TO A DRIVEN PILE

TWO EXPERIENCES WITH THE USE OF A NEW PIEZOMETER ARE REPORTED. THE PRINCIPLE OPERATION IS SIMILAR TO THE GEONOR PIEZOMETER IN THAT WATER PERMEATES THROUGH A POROUS MEMBRANE. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE LIES IN THE METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION AND INSTALLATION. THIS INSTRUMENT WAS DESIGNED FOR MEASURING THE WATER PRESSURES ADJACENT TO A DRIVEN STEEL PILE. TO ACHIEVE THIS, THE PIEZOMETER IS WELDED TO THE OUTSIDE FACE OF THE PILE AND DRIVEN WITH THE PILE. THE INSTALLATION TECHNIQUE WAS SATISFACTORY AND THE INSTRUMENT IS CONSIDERED SUCCESSFUL. A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS ARE PROPOSED AND THESE ARE ENUMERATED BRIEFLY. FINALLY THE SENSITIVITY OF THE INSTRUMENT IS CONSIDERED IN THE APPENDIX. /AUTHOR/
