Performance of Full Scale Tests of Piles in Different Soil Conditions
MetadataShow full item record
With the soaring requirement for building space in metropolises, high-rise buildings are becoming increasingly popular. Pile foundations can resist more loading through end bearing and friction resistance than can shallow foundations; hence, the use of pile foundations is more common. As a structural element that transfers the loads from upper structures into the soil layers, piles can be categorised into precast piles and cast-in-situ piles.
