By applying information about the pile, i.e. type and dimension, and external information from soil condition and hammer type, the pile driving can be simulated.
Consequently, the pile driveability can be estimated prior to driving, and the choise of hammer can be evaluated.
Driveability analysis provides information about:
- Driving resistance related to pile displacement per blow
- Pile stresses built up during certain driving conditions
- The estimated obtainable bearing capacity when applying a certain pile and hammer type
