Abstract

Vibration and noise induced by percussion piling are alway nuissances to residents in the vicinity of a foundation construction site. Therefore, Government authority imposes strict control on percussion piling to reduce such nuissances to nearby residents and to maintain the integrity of nearby fragile structures. However, it is difficult to establish adequate and practical guidelines without high quality field data. A field study is being conducted by The University of Hong Kong, in collaboration of local piling contractors, to evaluate ground vibration induced by percussion piling. The preliminary results of the ongoing study from a particular site are presented in this paper.
