Re: Concrete Poles

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

A round concrete pier embedded in the ground is the typical method used
to support these types of structures. The depth of embedment is
determined by the Rutledge Method. The overturning is resisted by the
development of opposite passive pressures at different depths similiar
to a cantilevered sheet pile wall. The biggest unknown will be your soil
conditions. Perhaps you might want to give your client different
embedment depths for different soil conditions.
