More > domain. Although these programs have been around a long time, they are still useful for the analysis of driven pile foundations for a wide variety of popular pile hammers. The publication is divided into four volumes, all of which are included in this reprint. Volume I contains background material. This details the basic theory behind the wave equation as applied to piles. Volume II is the User Manual for the mainframe version, and is included here for historical reference. Volume III contains installation details. Volume IV is the User Manual for the PC version. WEAP87 is a DOS program which can still be run on a wide variety of Windows computers.

Pile foundations are used extensively for the support of buildings, bridges, and other structures to safely transfer structural loads to the ground and to avoid excess settlement or lateral movement.... More > They are very effective in transferring structural loads through weak or compressible soil layers into the more competent soils and rocks below. A “driven pile foundation” is a specific type of pile foundation where structural elements are driven into the ground using a large hammer. They are commonly constructed of timber, precast prestressed concrete (PPC), and steel (H-sections and pipes). Historically, piles have been used extensively for the support of structures in Boston, MA. This is mostly a result of the need to transfer loads through the loose fill and compressible marine clays that are common in the Boston area. Driven piles, in particular, have been a preferred foundation system because of their relative ease of installation and low cost.< Less
