In order to be able to determine in advance whether a pile can be driven to the designed depth, one can choose to do a drivability study.

Based on the hammer to be used, a program is used to determine the expected blow count value. This is determined on the basis of the soil resistance during pile driving based on the soil investigation (CPT).

Drivability Studies

Drivability Studies

When driving precast concrete piles, a drivability study is used to check if the pile can be driven to the design level and if the stresses do not exceed allowable values during driving. This can be used to check if the prefacast concrete pile will not be damaged during pile driving. This also applies to the piling of steel tubular piles, which means that the stress n=cannot exceed the level at which fatigue or permanent deformation will occur.

Hektec can carry out a complete drivability study for various types of piles In this advice we indicate whether the piling can be carried out with the indicated hammer and what stresses will be during the pile driving. The analysis, forms the basis of the expected piling activities to be carried out.
