HIGH QUALITY PRECAST CONCRETE PILES

This presentation, based mainly on experience in Sweden where precast piles are commonly used, includes a general description of the precast pile, a discussion of quality requirements and installation procedures, information pertaining to design and loading requirements, and inspection and testing methods. Two short case histories are given as examples of the use of high capacity precast concrete piles, and a third case shows the importance of retapping of piles in sand.
