Pile Foundations

  • Bengt H. Fellenius
Chapter

Abstract

Piles are vertical or slightly inclined, relatively slender structural foundation members. They transmit loads from the superstructure to competent soil layers. Length, method of installation, and way of transferring the load to the soil can vary greatly.
