Piling can be used for shoring, but shoring is not necessarily piling. A soldier pile wall is a kind of shoring that commonly utilizes H-pile driven into the ground regularly with a diesel hammer, but it has the potential to work as a vibratory hammer. The lagging is generally boards or steel that fit between the H portion of the pile.
Piling can involve drilling a circular hole into the ground–installing the reinforcement of a steel and filling the bore hole with concrete to form a pile. Drilling is completed to the required depth by methods of either a crawler crane-mounted rotary drilling unit or a purpose-built hydraulic drilling machine. Piling is a sort of deep foundation, used to transfer the load to a deeper level than is possible with a conventional shallow foundation. Vertical columns of concrete, steel or wood, or a combination, are driven profoundly into the ground to give additional help for the building that sits on top.
Shoring refers to the form of prop or support, usually temporary, that is used during the repair or original construction of buildings and in excavations. Shoring is a typical method used for the reinforcement of below-ground excavations during construction projects, as well as to reinforce temporarily the above-ground structures which are being remodeled for or permanently reinforced using different methods. Basically, it is a common way required to install the foundation of a building
