Design and Construction of Waterfront Facilities at U.S. Navy Homeport at Ingleside, Texas
The waterfront facilities for the largest of the Navy's new homeports in the Gulf of Mexico were completed in 1990. The project included over 2,500 feet (762 m.) of deep draft bulkhead...

West Point Temporary Construction Dock
The West Point temporary construction dock is designed to provide construction access for the West Point treatment plant project located in Seattle, Washington. The dock plays a major...

Upgrading Today's Terminals for Tomorrow's Needs
This paper describes how a 1940's vintage, timber pile supported wharf is being modernized to serve post-Panamax ships: how the Massachusetts Port Authority (MASSPORT) is rebuilding their...

Replacement of a Deteriorated Steel Sheet Pile Bulkhead
This paper presents a life history of a marine steel sheet pile bulkhead, over 35 years old, that has been exposed to a salt water environment with minimal maintenance or repair in the...

Dynamic Soil-Pile-Structure Interaction—The State-of-Practice

Response of Model Pile Groups to Strong Shaking
The dynamic responses of small model pile groups to strong shaking obtained primarily from shake table tests are described and analyzed. As a basis for understanding pile group response,...

Seismic Pile-Group—Structure Interaction
A detailed multi-step procedure is outlined for a complete seismic soil-pile-foundation-structure interaction analysis, within the format of kinematic-inertial decomposition. Newly-developed...

Cone Models for a Pile Foundation
A single pile in a soil halfspace is modeled for dynamic excitation with disks and their corresponding double cones. This simple one-dimensional strength-of-materials approach provides...

The Superposition Approach to Pile Group Dynamics
A general three-dimensional boundary integral formulation for pile groups is used to obtain a set of dynamic interaction factors for a number of soil profiles and for a wide range of pile...

An Alternative Analysis of Vibration Tests on Two Pile Group Foundations
Published quick-release horizontal vibration tests on two pile group foundations supporting large transformer banks are analyzed in this paper using the dynamic impedance approach embodied...

Observed and Predicted Response of Piles Under Dynamic Loads
Vibration tests were conducted on a single pile 450 mm diameter and driven to a depth of 17 m. The dynamic soil properties were also determined by conducting in-situ tests. The response...

Forced Vibration Testing of an Expanded Base Concrete Pile
Forced vibration testing of a full-scale cast-in-situ expanded base concrete pile supporting a structural mass was conducted as part of a test pile program for a paper mill expansion at...

First and Second Order Dynamic Subgrade Models for Soil-Pile Interaction Analysis
The three-dimensional continuum solutions are used to examine the physical insight of a first order dynamic subgrade model, originally applied by Novak for dynamic pile response analysis....

Effects of Liquefaction on Lateral Pile Responses
The potential significance of the impact of liquefaction on the dynamic response of pile foundations has been studied through a numerical study. Results of this study demonstrated that...

Dynamic Parameters Analysis of Piles
This paper presents an analysis for the dynamic parameters of a single pile. The analysis allows consideration of pile-soil interaction, soil natural layered behavior and floating pile...

Soil-Pile-Superstructure System in Liquefaction
To obtain the dynamic behavior of the soil-pile-superstructure system in a liquefied sand layer, shaking table tests by using large scale shear bin (4m in length, 2m in width and 2m in...

Skin Friction Distrtibutions on Piles in Sand
Presented in this paper are early results from an analytical investigation of the performance of a closed-ended pipe pile under monotonic axial loading in dense sand. The study was performed...

Review of API Guidelines for Pipe Piles in Sand
Most offshore structures are supported using steel pipe piles which are designed in accord with API Recommended Practice 2A. The guidelines for analysis of axial capacity of steel pipe...

Piles Under Dynamic Loads
This proceedings, Piles Under Dynamic Loads, consists of papers that try to identify the state of practice in the analysis and design of pile...
