Title: Pipe Piling


1
Pipe Piling
  • Purpose and Types

2
What is Pipe Piling?
  • A technique used to support and stabilize a
    building's foundation.
  • For soil which is loosely packed, it may not
    offer enough strength to keep the building stable
    over time and hence, pipe piling is used to
    distribute the weight of the building deeper into
    the earth, where the soil is often more tightly
    packed.

  • Pipe piles are also used
  • to support exceptionally large or heavy
    buildings, where even standard soil cannot offer
    adequate support
  • when the land area is too small to accommodate
    spread footers or foundations, forcing buildings
    to dig deeper to achieve sufficient ground
    stability

5
Types
  • Based on building forces, soil conditions and
    local building codes there can be different
    piling methods.
  • Some of the common piling types include monopile
    foundation, drilled piles, under reamed piles,
    augercast pile, micropiles, tripod piles, sheet
    piles etc.

Determining a Requirement
  • Testing the soil can help determine whether piles
    are needed.
  • The structural engineer can determine the size
    and material needed for each pipe piling, as well
    as the required depth.

  • When a single pipe is not long enough to reach
    this depth, piles may be joined together using
    butt welds or splicing sleeves.
