Criteria for selecting the vibratory pile drivers

Monitoring and testing of buildings and structures

Nowadays in Russia there has been intensive transition from low-rise construction to the high-rise construction. High-rise construction requires reliable foundations. However, these foundations can be performed only by using modern technologies and construction machinery. In this regard, the optimization problem of choice the necessary construction equipment gains in special importance.

This article is devoted to refining the selection of equipment for pile driving, inter alia, the vibratory pile drivers.

The additional selection criteria of vibratory pile drivers are proposed by increasing the number of parameters on the basis of systematic approach. It creates, in turn, the necessary conditions for optimal choice of vibratory pile drivers.

In addition, known empirical dependencies were replaced by analytical dependencies. Received dependencies, according to the authors, meet more convenience of calculations, their transparency and consistency.
