EFFECTS OF PILE DRIVING IN CLAYS

THE EFFECTS OF DRIVING PILES ON REMOLDING, STRESSES, AND PROPERTIES OF CLAY ARE CONSIDERED. IT IS FOUND THAT TIMBER PILES CAUSE STRONG REMOLDING OF A ZONE EXTENDING 10-15 CM FROM THE PILE SURFACE, AND STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION PROPERTIES UNDERGO CHANGES EVEN BEYOND THIS ZONE. PILE TYPE, PILE DENSITY, SOIL PROPERTIES, AND DRIVING CONDITIONS INFLUENCE THESE RESULTS. THERE SEEM TO BE VERY SMALL CHANGES IN THE AVERAGE WATER CONTENT, SINCE THE REDUCTION ADJACENT TO THE PILE IS COUNTER-BALANCED BY AN INCREASE BETWEEN THE PILES. THE UNDRAINED SHEAR STRENGTH ADJACENT TO THE PILE IS IN ONE CASE FOUND TO BE MUCH HIGHER THAN THE SKIN FRICTION AT FAILURE. /RATAOC/
