Description

"The Application of Stress-Wave Theory to Piles: Science, Technology and Practice" contains 101 papers presented at the 8th International Conference on the Application of Stress Wave Theory to Piles, held in Lisbon, Portugal in 2008. It is divided in 14 chapters according to the conference themes: wave mechanics applied to pile engineering; relationship between static resistance to driving and long-term static soil resistance; case histories involving measurement and analysis of stress waves; dynamic monitoring of driven piles; dynamic soil-pile interaction models - numerical and physical modeling; high-strain dynamic test; low-strain dynamic test; rapid-load test; monitoring and analysis of vibratory driven piles; correlation of dynamic and static load tests; quality assurance of deep foundations using dynamic methods; incorporation of dynamic testing into design codes and testing standards; and, ground vibrations induced by pile motions and dynamic measurements in ground field testing. This volume aims to contribute to a better and more efficient professional interaction between specialized contractors, designers and academicians. By joining the contribution of all of them it was possible to elucidate the today's state-of-the-art in science, technology and practice in the application of stress wave theory to piles.show more
