The study attempted to better understand and predict the load movement characteristics and the static bearing capacity of vibro-driven displacement piles with and without restrike in saturated, submerged sand. Complementary large-scale model pile driving tests and analytical studies were conducted to identify the effects of soil parameters and in situ stresses on the behavior of vibro-driven piles in sands. The behavior of vibro-driven piles was also compared with that of impact-driven piles. The soil parameters considered were effective particle size and relative density. Several methods were proposed to predict the load-movement relationships and bearing capacity of driven piles. Conclusions drawn from the study are presented.
