Abstract

There are various methods for analyzing pile driving process such as dynamic formulas, wave equation analyses and dynamic measurements. The programs of the two latter methods are relatively expensive to purchase and also require trained engineers to interpret the data it collects. Meanwhile, the use of the site specific empirical formulas based on the real cases of pile driving and output analyses of the wave equation analysis programs can be beneficial. In the current study, pile driving data from three sites in the south of Iran were collected. Using the data of these cases and one-dimensional wave equation analysis program GRLWEAP, couple of experimental formulas which determine the proper range of hammer's ID for driving a pile, are proposed. Finally, due to the importance of the time in marine projects, another experimental formula is also proposed for the estimation of the total driving time.
