PILING DIFFICULTIES IN THE NEW YORK AREA

In this discussion of floating pile foundations in New York, Reti suggests that the economic aspects should have been considered, and that the subsequent behavior of the foundations and the structure should have been included. Possible explanations are given for the strange phenomena during the driving and testing of the piles. Feld elaborates on the distinction between piles and foundations. He discusses the difficulties encountered in such endeavors, the effect of the New York City building code, the cost of correcting the eccentricity of pile groups which differ from the planned location, and the virtues of larger pile caps.
