Site Improvement for a Steel Mill Complex

Sylvan Beach Pier Rehabilitation Study
The Sylvan Beach Pier is a navigation guide jetty located at the east and of Oneida Lake in Oneida County, New York. It protects the entrance to the New York State Barge Canal which crosses...

Naval Pier Foundation Design and Construction, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
The paper presents a case study of foundation design and construction for a pier in Pearl Harbor. The study covers a review of site investigations, laboratory testing, pile selection and...

Piles Over Problems Sites
It's increasingly difficult to find suitable space for construction in urban areas. Pile foundations can fill the void by making questionable and heavily regulated sites,...

Dynamic Response Analysis of Pile Foundations by Using Variational Calculus
Various approaches have been developed for the frequency-domain dynamic response analysis. The one proposed by M. Novak (1974) is simplest of all and yet produces the results very close...

Modal and Response Analyses of a Paper Machine Foundation

Modeling the Stiffness of Pile Group Foundations

Mass and Energy Tradeoffs of Axial Penetration Devices on Lunar Soil Simulant
Axial penetration of the lunar surface was performed to collect soil samples with drive tubes and drill cores on the six successful Apollo missions. Although the pile-driving and drill...

Slope Displacement from Pile Driving

Offshore Pile System Reliability
The existing design methodology for offshore pile foundations is evaluated relative to the ultimate performance of the foundation system using reliability techniques and data from three...

Pile Installation and Testing at Ningbo Port, China
As part of an ambitious development program at the Port of Ningbo, the People's Republic of China constructed a 694 m (2277 ft) long offshore pier structure to provide a container berth...

Analysis of a Wharf for a Container Terminal
A balanced combination of sophisticated computer programs was employed to model the soil strata, foundation and structure of a wharf for a new container terminal in the Port of Topolobampo,...

Deep Water Container Wharf & Crane Foundation
A deep water anchored steel bulkhead and a parallel-independent low-profile, pile supported crane rail foundation with special stowage areas are discussed from soils investigation, through...

Design of Marina Replacement Facilities
A majority of the waterfront design projects within the State of California are for the replacement of existing facilities since the densely populated shoreline areas are already heavily...

Pile Lateral Load Test in the Port of Los Angeles
Recent wharf projects in West Coast ports have featured rock dikes to contain backland fill and the use of vertical piles embedded in the rock dikes to resist lateral loads. This paper...

Batter Piles and the Seismic Performance of Pile-Supported Wharves
This paper discusses the role of batter piles in the seismic performance of wharves, based on the results of a nonlinear soil-structure interaction analysis of a pile-supported wharf with...

Pile Driving: Can it Cause Slope Movement?
The potential for slope movement from pile driving is examined in this paper. Published information is reviewed to identify the primary causes of movement, which are 1) displacement of...

Proposed Seismic Design Method for Piers and Wharves
Current seismic provisions of the 1991 Uniform Building Code (UBC-91) and the 1983 AASHTO Seismic Design Specifications (AASHTO) are compared as they relate to piers and wharves. An alternate...

Seismic Rehabilitation of Seattle's Pier 69
The Port of Seattle, one of the largest on the west coast of North America, made a strong statement regarding their support for reusing existing structures when a decision was made to...
