What is hammer timber pile?
September 24, 2009 4:49AM
Hammer timber pile is something people use to work with. Maybe, you should google it sometime. If you did, I'm very sorry that you couldn't find anything but I will help you :D
Asked in Soil
What is the soil type for timber pile?
A timber pile is not soil, it's a pile of timber. If a substance does not support plant growth or have the capability of supporting plant growth, it is not soil. If the timber pile decomposes to a point where the remaining organic matter can support plant growth, it would be considered an organic soil, provided the layer of organic matter was thick enough. Organic soils are known as Histosols in US Soil Taxonomy.

Is pile a concrete noun?
How do you know from the integrity test the necking in the concrete pile?
an anomaly in the reflectogram can be caused by necking if the curve deflects first in the direction of the hammer blow, and then in the opposite direction before returning to normal. in the European usage, the hammer blow is plotted downwards. thus a necking in the pile causes the reflectogram to deflect first downwards and then upwards. if the anomaly is in the upper half of the pile, it can repeat itself one or more times, depending on the pile profile and soil properties. all consequent reflections will have the same characteristics as the first one - downward and then upward.

Asked in Building and Carpentry, Civil Engineering
How many methods can enable construction of pile foundations and how?
You can use hammer, press or vibration drivers. The most common are hammer and vibration drivers, which pound on or vibrate the pile to sink it into the ground. Where noise or vibration would be a no-no, press drivers can be employed. Hammer drivers can be operated mechanically, hydraulically or pneumatically. In all types of hammer driver, the ram is raised in a slide and allowed to drop on the head of the pile. Repeat until the pile is at the required depth. Make sure you are wearing your ear protectors if you're nearby. Hammer driving can also have a detrimental effect on nearby buildings, as the seismic waves generated are powerful. Typically the ground around the driver will jump a few inches with each blow. (There is a method in which the ram is constructed to form a single cylinder diesel engine but I'm unfamiliar with this technique. Most of the pile drivers I've seen were hydraulically raised hammer or mechanical vibration types.) Vibration drivers operate on a different principle. Usually there is a hydraulic arm and a motor driving an eccentric cam or a shaft which is weighted to put it out of balance; the vibration causes the earth to assume liquid-like properties and the pile slowly glides in under the pressure of the pile driver arm. This is nowhere near as noisy as hammer driving. Unfortunately the powerful seismic vibration can have a bad effect on nearby buildings and can be quite unpleasant for nearby humans. Press drivers use (usually) hydraulic brute force to push the pile in; doing it like this requires Big Science but has the advantage of being relatively quiet and kind to nearby foundations and people. For driving smaller pilings or for shoring trenches, the bucket of a digger can be used to good effect. Just raise it up and bring it down hard.
Asked in Sports, Speed of Light, Speed of Sound
Encountered phenomenon that illustrates the difference between speed of light and speed of sound?
If someone driving in fence-posts with a hammer is observed at a distance of several hundred yards, it will be apparent that the sound of the hammer striking the post is not coincident with the action; it will be heard as the hammer is being raised for the next stroke. The same effect can be observed when watching a pile-driver at a similar distance.
Asked in Concrete and Cement
How do you fasten 2 x 4 to concrete walls in basement?
One method to fasten timber to a concrete wall: You will need: * a hammer drill * a masonry bit * a timber bit * a pencil or marker * concrete fasteners: these could be expanding bolts that will grip the sides of the hole drilled into the concrete as they are tightened; bolts set into epoxy resin in the drilled hole in the concrete; or screws tightened into plugs hammered into holes drilled in the concrete * a plumb line or level * measuring tape or ruler # Measure the required location of the timber on the wall # Check with plumb line or level # Mark the location # Mark and drill with the timber bit at least two holes for fasteners (the number required will depend on the load to be carried and the size of the timber) in the timber # Locate the timber on the wall and mark the corresponding locations on the concrete through the holes in the timber # At these locations drill into the concrete with a hammer drill and masonry bit the correct depth and diameter for the fasteners you have # clear all dust and residue from the holes # Attach the timber using the fasteners. Note builders epoxy sets very quickly Timber should be separated from concrete by a moisture barrier such as damp proof course, plastic membrane etc to prevent any condensation on the concrete causing moisture buildup and rot in the timber
