Information is derived on fundamental compaction characteristics, especially under impact; method to estimate compaction of cohesionless soils near shaft and base of driven piles and displacement caissons of Franki type; method is suggested for estimating settlement and allowable load of single driven piles and displacement caissons and of groups in cohesionless soils.
