Pile-Drving Calculations with notes on Driving Forces, and Ground Resistance

In contrast to driving bearing piles for which the direct resistance below the point often becomes greater than the frictional value that the sides can afford, sheet steel piles encounter the greater proportion of their resistance through friction between the ground and their side surface which is very considerable compared with the sectional area of the solid steel pile which can, however, transmit a very high driving force without becoming deformed.
