10"-12" diameter steel Pile embedement

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

Hi guys,


What is the minimum embedment length of steel pipe piles allowed by the code?


I am looking at a 6” embedment in to my concrete cap and another 3” clear for my reinforcing steel above the pile but not certain if this is a rule of thumb or by the code. Can anybody confirm this?
