A strain-gauge measurement technique was used to assess the characteristics of the dynamic and static loading on steel bearing piles. In the investigation 700 pile driving blows were examined and a stress analysis carried out. The results show that during pile driving through hard strata the impact stresses were 0.6-0.7 times the minimum yield stress at the last blow. These impulsive stresses had no measurable effect on the structure of the pile. The results suggest that an increase in design stresses might safely be used for steel bearing piles. /TRRL/
