Pile Driving Issues - Myth Busters Edition!

The PDCA of the Northeast Chapter will present a one-day professional development course covering an introduction to the theory of vibrations during pile driving, driving piles with a vibro hammer, soil fatigue using a vibro and impact hammer and steel pile damage assessment. 

The course provides an introductory look at the theory behind vibrations during pile driving and explains the logic behind the limits for vibration levels that are used in specifications for vibration monitoring.  Additional topics cover driving piles with a vibro hammer and includes large diameter pipe piles and related case studies.  Attendees will also hear about soil fatigue phenomenon during vibratory and impact pile driving sequences.  Finally, the presentation will conclude with a discussion of steel pile damage assessment with two case studies, one from Vietnam and one from Boston.  The goal of
this course is to strengthen the student's knowledge of the advanced pile driving issues and geotechnical engineering tools to mitigate potential pile driving problems.

6 PDH's will be awarded upon
completion of the course for NY, NJ
or PA
