Abstract : The Workshop on Effects of Piles on Soil Properties was held at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station on 13-l5 July 1993, and this report presents the proceedings of that workshop. The Workshop was conducted to evaluate needs for research to he conducted by the private sector, institutions of higher learning, or Government agencies concerning the changes in soil properties caused by emplacement of piles or other deep foundation elements. Suggestions for research in soil structure interaction, effects of pile driving on soil properties, verification of soil property changes, and methods of testing and numerical modeling for investigating the problems which were developed at the Workshop are included in the proceedings. Papers presented and contributed to the Workshop are also included. Conclusions reached by the Workshop participants indicate that research into the changes in soil properties caused by pile driving is a valid area of inquiry which could lead to improved design techniques for piles and other deep foundation elements.
