Dear Friends ,
Today we shall have a look at the primary considerations for calculating the basic parameters of a friction pile.
But before we take up the discussions , let us have a look at this picture :
Now ,a look at the Friction piles :
Whenever, the depth of the hard strata is so deep that boring up to that depth is either not economical or it takes too much time , it is suggested to go for Friction Piles.
The load is carried by the friction developed between the concrete surface and the surrounding soil
Now let us study the basic guiding calculations :
To illustrate this point , let us solve a few examples :
Another example :
Before making a sketch of the Pile cap , have a look at this conceptual diagram :
Now we can make a tentative diagram :
