PILED FOUNDATIONS AND SHEETPILING

DETAILS ARE GIVEN ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF LARGE CYLINDER FOUNDATIONS OR PILES FOR BUILDINGS AND THE TASMAN BRIDGE, TASMANIA. THE SHAFTS OF THE PILES FOR ONE BUILDING WERE LINED WITH SALVANIZED CORRUGATED METAL SLEEVES WHICH WERE PRESSURE-GROUTED INTO POSITION. THE SHAFTS WERE BELLED-OUT AT THE BOTTOM AND WERE FILLED WITH CONCRETE TO THE LEVEL AT WHICH THE CONCRETE AND STEEL CONSTRUCTION OF THE STRUCTURE COMMENCED. THE TASMAN BRIDGE HAS BORED PILES INSTALLED BY FORCING A HOLLOW STEEL CYLINDER INTO THE GROUND, EXCAVATING INSIDE, AND FILLING IT WITH REINFORCED CONCRETE. LOAD- BEARING CAST-INSITU PILES OF VARIOUS SHAPES ARE BEING CONSTRUCTED BY THE BENTONITE PROCESS. SILENT, SONIC, AND DESCRIBED. A DEVICE FOR CUTTING OFF CONCRETE PILES IS ILLUSTRATED.
