RE: Splicing of precast concrete piles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I realize that a code only gives minimum requirements. In this case we are not designing anything for the client. I don't even know where in the world the project is located, except that it must be outside Denmark, since US codes are to be used. I can, and will, give our client reasons for using robust pile splices, but that does not answer his question; Is it required by code.

Any code is only a guiding document. As engineers we
have to exercise logic and judgment. Otherwise we are
no different from lawyers!
