RE: API Pipes as Pile Matl

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

We use API specs for pipe piles all the time.  They have better control of the seam welds of the pipe.  I have a rush deadline so I can't post more but, yes, API specs are preferred in our office.

Subject: API Pipes as Pile Matl



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.
