DF23 Another equation referred to as the Danish formula also yields results as reliable as any other equation's: (8.103) where E = hammer efficiency HE == rated hammer energy E, == modulus of elasticity of the pile material L == length of pile A" == area of the pile cross section (Note: The area of the soil plug, as shown in Figw"e 8.10b and 8.1Oc, should not be included) Consistent units must be used in Eq. (8.103). A factor of safety varying from 3 to 6 is recommended to estimate the allowable load·bearing capacity of piles. Other frequently used equations for pile driving are those given by the Pacific Coast Uniform Building Code (International Conference
