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 elastoplastic load displacement pilesoil 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 38 presents the solution for the dynamic pile capacity R u (Paikowsky , 1994). ( 29 2 max Set D Set E R m u+ = (38) 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...
