Pieresearch is proud to present the following video on the construction of drilled shaft deep foundations. This educational presentation has been made possible through the invaluable expertise and contributions of recognized industry leaders and companies.

Video topics discussed:

  • Reliability of drilled shafts (aka drilled piers, caissons, cast-in-drilled-hole piles or cast-in-situ piles)
  • Benefits and requirements of drilled shaft construction
  • Advantages of drilled shafts over driven piles
  • Types of medium and subsurface conditions drilled shafts can be installed in
  • Applications and locations for drilled shaft construction
  • Construction considerations and types of construction techniques that are compatible with specific soil types
  • Reinforcement and concrete cover considerations to prevent corrosion
  • Prediction of axial capacity of drilled shafts using values provided by geotechnical engineers
  • Test methods used to estimate the bearing capacity and skin or side friction values for the design
  • How soil properties, soil strength and soil settlement play an important role in predicting long term load performance
  • Compare installation methods and material placement for the “dry method”, “wet method” and “casing method” to maintain shaft integrity
  • The importance of proper cage design and accurate cage placement using centering devices and bottom spacers
