Now we will list the most frequently encountered types of piles. Note that almost all pile types we will mention below…

## Pile Groups

Piles are often times combined into groups, by connecting them with pile caps at their top. When grouped, piles act differently…

## Pile Capacity

Vertical downwards loads (Compression): Pile carrying capacity for vertical downward loads, comes from two things: The frictional resistance over their side…

## Deep Foundations (Pile Foundations)

Deep foundations, also called as pile foundations, are used when there is not sufficiently strong soil at a reasonable depth, and…

## Shallow foundations

Design: Shallow foundations are used where the soil has enough bearing capacity and shear strength (in other words strong enough) at…
