Abstract:This report presents recommendations to assist the design engineer, the manufacturer, the field engineer, and the contractor in the design and use of most types of concrete piles for many kinds of construction. An introductory chapter provides a description of the various types of piles, definitions used in this report, and a list of reference material. The section on design discusses factors that should be considered in the design of piles and pile foundations, and presents data to assist the engineer to evaluate and provide for these factors that affect the load carrying capacities of different types of concrete piles. A chapter on materials lists the various materials and makes recommendations regarding how they affect quality and strength of concrete. Reference is made to applicable existing codes and specifications. Minimum requirements and basic manufacturing procedures for precast piles are stated so that design requirements for quality, strength, and durability can be achieved. The concluding chapter sets forth general principles for proper installation of piling so that the structural integrity and ultimate purpose of the pile are achieved. The wide variety of installation methods used, and many new techniques are outlined.
