A waveguide is a structure that guides waves, such as electromagnetic waves or sound, with minimal loss of energy by restricting the transmission of energy to one t the physical constraint of a waveguide, wave amplitudes decrease according to the inverse square law as they expand into three dimensional space.. There are different types of waveguides for different types of waves. The test piles were of cylindrical shape and were cast in concrete to two different diameters 50 mm and 75 mm. The length of the piles ranged from mm to mm. Grade 20 concrete mix with maximum aggregate size of 6 mm was used in casting the piles. For 75 mm diameter piles four reinforcement bars of 6 mm diameter were.
The response of rigid piles in sand to an inclined tensile load is poorly documented and understood, particularly when the load is cyclic. This is becoming relevant for floating marine renewable energy devices such as wave energy converters and floating wind turbines. An analytical method is provided for ground motion of a semi-cylindrical hill with a subsurface linear crack under SH -wave. A suitable Green’s function for the problem discussed in this paper is constructed by complex function and multi-polar coordinate systems. It is the fundamental solution of the displacement field for an elastic half space with a semi-cylindrical hill under an out-plane.
A Mooring Buoy system consists of multiple steel buoys. The exact configuration depends on water depth, field requirements and environmental conditions. Typically it is a pattern of four to eight mooring points used to moor tankers. Each point consists of a rigid buoy moored to . The shaft resistances of piles driven in sand can often be mobilized fully at axial displacements smaller than 10% of the piles’ diameters r, far larger displacements may be required to mobilize end bearing fully, especially with large open-ended piles. Such displacements cannot be tolerated in most cases, so the static axial compression capacity is often defined as the load Q total.

Proceedings of the 3 rd ASCE Specialty Lotfollahi-Yaghin Mohammad Ali, et al. Wave Force on Double Cylindrical Piles: a Comparison between Exact and Finite Difference Solutions 40 Conference on. A statistical estimate of the extreme wave force per unit length acting on a section of a fixed cylindrical pile in a random sea-state is derived.
The random motion of the sea is described by a spectrum of wave heights in conjunction with linear wave theory. For the first time, a theoretical formulation is presented for the load-transfer analysis of an elastic cylindrical thin-walled pile immersed in a transversely isotropic half-space under.
Wave interaction with complex structural environments can be analyzed by regarding the overall response as the response from coupled subsystems. The decomposition into subsystems is wavenumber‐scale dependent, and the “best” classification involves weak coupling between subsystems but strong coupling of wave types within a subsystem.
How to effect the classification is illustrated. the Coastal Research Centre (FZK) in Hannover, Germany, to measure the wave forces acting on a cylindrical pile.
This wave flume has an effective length of m, a width of 5 m and a depth of 7 m. A steel circular cylinder with a diameter of m was instrumented and installed in the flume. In current practice, splicing of timber piles is an infrequent occurrence.
Structural Characteristics The normal design load for a timber pile is 15 to 25 tons with a maximum permis sible load of 30 tons. A number of load tests on timber piles embedded for their full length have indicated a safe load capacity of 40 tons.
Timber piles are. This book provides the commonly used methods for solving Biot’s formulations and conclusions on fully-saturated soil dynamics. It presents various solution methods used in Biot’s theory, such as the integral transformation method, the wave potential decomposition method, the finite element, and the D finite element method.
The process of applying the wave load and current to the offshore structure is illustrated in Figure as described in API RP2A.
Bending stresses due to both horizontal and vertical forces should be investigated. However, the current velocity components should not be included in the wave kinematics when calculating wave loading.
On the basis of Morison’s empirical formula and modal separation method in estimating the force and torque exerted by internal solitary waves (ISWs) on a cylindrical pile, it is found that the loads exerted by the ISWs change largely in different seasons at the same site of the continental shelf in the South China Sea (SCS) even under the condition that the amplitudes of ISWs are the same.
Results obtained under the individual wind loading (Fig. 16(a)–Fig. 16 (c)) and the combined wave and current loading (Fig (a)–Fig (c)) are similar to those obtained under the combined wind, wave and current loading. That is, the rotation, the lateral displacement and the bending moment of the pile for the hybrid foundation are.
The use of Morison’s equation together with the linear wave theory is considered a first approximation to evaluate the inline wave forces on a surface-piercing cylinder.
Significant second-order forces are expected to arise from the waterline and dynamic pressure effects, even when a wave. A pile is defined as rigid if the pile-soil relative stiffness, E.

Through scale-model tests, the forces, moments, and the pressure distributions, including impact pressures, were determined for large diameter piers extending through large-amplitude wave system in which current strengths vary Tests were performed at 1/ scale, simulating piers of the bridge for the Northumberland Strait Crossing, Canada These piers are partially cylindrical with a base.
Current design methods are based on the results of static pile tests, and it can be demonstrated that if an allowance for rate of loading were to be made, the ultimate pile load could be increased by the order of %.
Summary. All the points mentioned up until this point have concerned solely the loading of a pile along its axis. Pretensioned spun concrete piles is a relatively new type of pile that consists of a cylindrical pile with a void. It is similar to cylinder piles, with a different manufacturing process.
Timber Piles. Timber piles have been used in North American since the mid s, and are still used to this day.The two piles are placed in tandem arrangement. The bottom centre of the upstream cylindrical pile (Pile 1) locates at from the coordinate origin, while L is the centre-to-centre distance between Pile 1 and the downstream cylindrical pile (Pile 2).

Deep foundations are necessary where the bearing capacity of the surface soils is insufficient to support loads imposed on it and hence they are transferred to deeper layers with high bearing capacity. Pile foundations are deep foundations which are formed.
