Piles & Foundations: Q-A

1 It is not necessary to design nominal reinforcement to piles. Is it true?
2 How do rock sockets take up loads?
3 In designing mini-piles, should the strength of grout be neglected during assessment of loading carrying capacity?
4 What are the considerations in determining whether casings should be left in for mini-piles?
5 What is the purpose of post-grouting for mini-piles?
