Vibrating Piles  
  • Vibration of a single pile.
    • Observation of a Karman vortex street
    • Effect of the rod diameter
    • Effect of additional masses
  • Coupled vibrations between two piles.
  • Single rods: 600mm long, made of PVC, Diameters = 8mm, 10mm and 12mm
  • Weights: 3× 100g and 1× 40g (holder)
  • Rods for vibration of 2 parallel piles: 2x D=8mm

This module is used to study the vibrations of a single pile or of two parallel piles in a flow.

  • The rods are used as vibrating piles for the experimental flume.
  • The module contains three single rods with different diameters.
  • The module includes a weight holder with weights as additional masses for the single rod to be studied.
  • Vibration of 2 parallel piles can be achieved by 2 identical rods with holding device and the distance of rods is adjustable.
  • When a single rod is studied, the holding device for parallel piles is fastened on the flume bottom.
