Abstract

During the pile driving, there are many problems to be concerned such as pile damage, hammer performance to the pile, drivability of pile in various soil strata and determine pile bearing capacity. Unfortunately, being the pile driven underground and therefore ‘out of sight’ identifying those problems and therefore implementing remedial actions is considerably more difficult than in structure placed above ground level. This research gives an overview of most common testing method used to determine the cause of pile damage and the pile bearing capacity during pile driving. By WAVE equation, it can be predicted the desired pile bearing capacity with applicable hammer configuration. However, this process is before pile driving and therefore the problems are still ‘out of sight’. Thereafter, case method is developed to monitor and identify the pile defects and pile bearing capacity during pile driving and therefore those problems will not be ‘out of mind’. Applying case histories to build up a statistically results, the paper also describes the relationship between pile damage and pile bearing capacity
