Unformatted text preview: M P Mass of the Pile D max Maximum Penetration of Pile per Blow s Permanent Set Paikowskys method The Paikowsky method or Energy Approach is a simplified energy approach formulation for the prediction of pile resistance based on the dynamic measurements recorded during driving. The basic assumption of the method is an elasto-plastic load displacement pile-soil reaction. The Paikowsky method uses as input parameters the maximum calculated transferred energy and maximum pile displacement from the measured data together with the field blow count. Equation 3-8 presents the solution for the dynamic pile capacity R u (Paikowsky , 1994). ( 29 2 max Set D Set E R m u-+ = (3-8) where R u Dynamic Pile Capacity E m Maximum Energy Entering the Pile D max Maximum Pile Top Pile Movement Set Point permanent penetration per blow The static pile resistance P u can be obtained by...
