Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

All pile-driving formulas, used at present time, are partly empirical and apply only to certain types or lengths of pile; mathematical method of wider application, depending on use of electronic computers and numerical integration is presented; pile must be divided for calculation into unit lengths considerably shorter than wavelength of stress or impact wave produced by hammer; application to other impact problems.
