DESIGN OF COLUMBIA RIVER PILE DIKES

DESIGNERS OF TIMBER RIVER CONTROL WORKS OFTEN NEED TO CONSIDER THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE PILE STRUCTURE IN ADDITION TO ITS NORMAL FUNCTION TO SHAPE A NAVIGATION CHANNEL. THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF FORCES TO WHICH THE PILES ARE SUBJECTED, AND A PRACTICAL PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINING THE REQUIRED PENETRATION DEPTH AND THE STRESSES IN PILES AND FOUNDATIONS ARE DEVELOPED. PREVIOUS DESIGN WORK WERE PERFORMED BY JUDGMENT AND EXTENSIVE OBSERVATION OF PROBLEM BARS. /ASCE/
