RE: Self Driving Caissons

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Can you describe what a self-driving caisson is?  How
is it different from a drilled, vibrated, screwed, or
driven caisson?

To all in sunny CA and beyond,
Has anyone had any experience or know of someone with experience, good
bad, with self driving concrete caissons.  I've talked to a few
that have placed some circular ones.  I am contemplating a large
rectangular section that can be remotely excavated from the interior to
depth of 60 to 70 feet in granular soils.  This may be a misapplication,
but I'm willing to learn.
