Document Type: Journal Paper


Designers of timber river control works often need to consider the structural integrity of the pile structure in addition to its normal function to shape a navigation channel. The paper develops the nature and extent of forces to which the piles are subjected, and develops a practical procedure for determining the required depth of penetration and the stresses in the piles and foundations. Previous design work had been performed by judgment and extensive observation of problem bars.
