RE: Micropiles

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is a FHWA publication on micropile design and construction called
FHWA-SA-97-070. An electronic version should be downloadable from the
following link, but I was having trouble with it.

http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/elibrary.htm

Micropiles are not like ordinary piles. A little background is provided in
the following FHWA memo. These are also called pin piles.

Another good source of information would be specialty contractors like
Schnabel or Nicholson. I know they have promotional literature that talks
about these. Ischebeck also has some info.

http://www.nicholson-rodio.com/papers/papers.html

http://www.ischebeck.de/englisch/set_1_i.htm

Hope these help.

Does anybody have experience with Micropiles? I need to prepare some specs
to retrofit an existing foundation. I don't think the specs would be any
different from ordinary piles.
