Description and Table of Contents


This technical report covers all aspects of the uses of precast concrete piles - design, manufacture, transport, handling, pitching and driving. Both reinforced and prestressed concrete piles are dealt with and attention is paid to the use of both plan piles and those with enlarged toes. Although the report is a translation of parts of a set of three volumes prodduced in the Netherlands, those parts reproduced are internationally applicable. Special sections deal with the effects of pile driving on adjacent buildings and theor occupants - both as regards vibration and noise.
