Pile Driving Noise Attenuation

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is required to attenuate impact pile driving noise and more recently vibratory pile drives due to the enactment of the Marine Mammal Act. This continuing research builds upon the knowledge of previous research and field testing by engineering pile designs that achieve required noise attenuation levels and also explores the use of composite pile materials as a strategy for noise reduction. New tools to collect underwater noise data will also be refined.
