Abstract:
It is well established that concrete piles are a satisfactory substitute for wooden piles in increasing the stability of foundations, whether they are of the cast-and-driven type or the cast-in-place type. The cast-and-driven type is made of reinforced concrete, molded to the desired shape and cured before being driven. The cast-in-place type is made by forming a hold in the gound and filling it with concrete.
