    Abstract

    In this paper, the Smith finite difference solution of 1 D-wave equation was applied to the study of pile foundations of Bohai offshore platforms in North China. Piles were 90 to 110 cm in outside diameter OD with variable wall thickness and 69 to 72 m in length. Driveability analysis and prediction of bearing capacity were made and compared with field driving records and static load tests with encouraging results.

    Keywords:

    piles, pile foundations, offshore structure, driveability, wave equation analysis, stress-wave theory of application, instrumentation, prediction of bearing capacity
