Vibrational behavior of a partially embedded pile has been studied theoretically and some of the results compared with available field data. A mathematical model incorporating pile-soil interaction for resonant pile driving has been proposed. Only the logitudinal mode of the pile has been considered, but the same theory may be modified slightly to predict torsional behavior as well. The model equation is solved through standard Fourier transform method. Certain simplification has been introduced to the solution to minimize computational effort while retaining good accuracy.
