Chang-Yeon Cho, Jae-woo Park, Junbok Lee, Han-Soo Kim, Jeoung-Tae Kim

This research is intended to develop a pilot type of automated pile verticality control equipment for PHC piles and motivated by a desire to address problems inherent in as-is verticality control exercise during pile driving. The paper provides understanding of the current verticality control methods and associated problems, design and manufacturing of the automated equipment pilot type, its testing and discussions of the results.
