Ground-borne vibrations due to press-in piling operations

The press-in-method to study the ground-borne vibrations at press-in piling sites was described. The press-in-method combined the advantages of traditional dynamic piling techniques with the low environmental disturbance associated with bored piles. The method helped in reduction of ground-borne vibrations, which reduced the separation between piling operations and sensitive structures by a factor of 10-50. The separation between the piling operations and public was be decreased by a factor of up to 5, which helped designers to predict the level of disturbance associated with press-in method.

Abstract

The press-in-method to study the ground-borne vibrations at press-in piling sites was described. The press-in-method combined the advantages of traditional dynamic piling techniques with the low environmental disturbance associated with bored piles. The method helped in reduction of ground-borne vibrations, which reduced the separation between piling operations and sensitive structures by a factor of 10-50. The separation between the piling operations and public was be decreased by a factor of up to 5, which helped designers to predict the level of disturbance associated with press-in method.
