INTRODUCTION:

To prevent pile driving problems during the construction of a jetty at Grenada a proof testing approach was applied whereby test pile driving was performed at several places where the jetty was to be constructed. With these proof testing results, the design could be finalized and pile driving criteria could be established for the construction phase of the jetty. This resulted in very efficient pile driving during construction. A half year after construction the jetty was able to withstand the onslaught by Ivan (2004), a Category 5 hurricane.
