Re: API Pipes as Pile Matl

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Milo,
 
        I've used 6" pipe piles for a few miles of light pipe rack and have never had a problem.  12" seams a bit excessive; but, if the client has the material and has no better use for it, why not use it for piperack support.
 
Regards,

List,

Our client has extra API pipes (12" dia. x 1/2 thk) that he prefer to use as pile foundation for a pipe rack project. Building code does not list API pipes as pile material.

Any advise on the suitability or acceptability of these material for building applications.

Thanks in advance.
