Abstract:
An alternative method for construction of pile caps on single, bored cast-in-place piles is proposed. The method allows a single subcontractor to install both the pile and the pile cap, thereby saving time by eliminating the need for separate excavation, construction, and backfilling operations to complete the pile cap.
