Pile capacity prediction using Vibratory hammer

Has anybody heard of any method to predict pile capacity using a vibratory hammer?

RE: Pile capacity prediction using Vibratory hammer

Someone in my firm just published a paper with DFI on determining pile capacity from rapid load tests.  If this is what you are looking for then I could try to get you the info.

RE: Pile capacity prediction using Vibratory hammer

I believe GRL was doing some reserch on the subject to develop a program similar to WEAP. You may want to check with them (www.pile.com). Also Bowles listed some formulas in his book "Foundation Analysis & Design" but I beleive he cautions that they are approximate at best.
