It covers general principles and practices; types, including driven displacement piles, driven and cast-in-place displacement piles, replacement piles, composite piles, minipiles, pre-packed piles, and factors governing choice of type; piling equipment and methods; calculating the resistance of piles to compressive loads; pile groups under compressive loading; the design of piled foundations to resist uplift and lateral loading; the structural design of piles and pile groups; piling for marine structures; miscellaneous piling problems, such as for machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, frozen ground, bridges on land, over-water bridges, and seismic regions; the durability of piled foundations; and ground investigations, piling contracts, and pile testing.
Additive formation of composites relies on sequential layering of multiple composite piles with each ply containing fibers.
