Abstract:

Using prior test results this study refined an analytical model investigating various alternatives to optimize concrete pile design for Navy piers. Parameters evaluated were size, prestressing force, load application, ductility, placement of reinforcement, and concrete strength. It was demonstrated that prestressed concrete piles will outperform steel and timber piles in a pile-for-pile energy comparison and are more cost-effective. Recommendations are made for a final test program. Keywords Fenders, Piles, and Fender piles.
