Abstract : Prestressed pretensioned concrete sheet piling was used to form a part of the south bulkhead at Manasquan Inlet, Manasquan River, New Jersey. It was thought that excessive driving required for some of the piles might have resulted in damage to the concrete. A soniscope investigation was performed on the exposed portion of 14 of the piles in an attempt to determine if and to what extent the piling was damaged. Sixteen stations were located on each pile, and readings were taken straight through and diagonally through the concrete.
