Experience with construction of cast-in-place slag-soil-cement pile foundations in Zaporozhe

  • 41 Accesses


1. The simple technique for construction of slag-soil-cement pile foundations makes it possible to build piles with widened tips or thickened shafts at any level.

2. It is recommended that as fill material use be made of any hardening mix meeting the strength and operation requirements of the structures, including blast-furnace slags.

3. Maximum mechanization of the zero-cycle (substructure) work is attained.

4. Maximum utilization of the fill material is achieved and the lowest cost per 10 kN of bearing capacity of the piles is obtained, for high-quality, reliable foundations.
