A pile is essentially a long cylinder of a solid material. A pile will function as a steady support for structures standing over it when it is pushed into the ground. Pile foundations have the capability of taking higher loads than spread footings. Foundation piles are structural elements that exchange loads through weak, compressible soils to hidden competent soils or rock. Foundation piles are commonly connected to the structure and should be installed prior to building construction or as supporting elements for existing building. The driven-elements comprised of timber, steel, or concrete, or constructed in the ground by drilling an open hole and filling it with reinforced concrete. The load can be transported to the bearing stratum through the bearing’s end and/or side friction.
Foundation piles are driven into the soil to a specific profundity (depth) and attached to your foundation. The piles and their plates help disperse the weight of your structure across the foundation, which stabilizes your foundation and avoids future foundation damage. Diverse kinds of pile foundations are used in the construction industry. The pile foundation is used to take the weight of the vertical structure to the deep part of the soil, which has more strength than the upper part of the soil. Piles foundation are made of concrete , precast or poured insitu on the construction site. Common uses of foundation pile include supporting new or existing structures, supporting compressive, tensile, or lateral loads, and supporting static and seismic loads.
