Pile breaking

Table of Contents Professional pile breaking is an important step in the construction industry, especially for the foundations of buildings. It must be ensured that the piles provide a level and load-bearing surface, which is essential for the subsequent construction. Depending on the structure, the piles must be able to absorb either compressive or tensile…

Contiguous pile wall

The contiguous pile wall is a special form of retaining wall construction in which the bored piles are inserted at certain distances from each other. A contiguous pile wall consists of individual piles set at regular intervals, between which the earth shoring is often provided with shotcrete. This construction method is often used to stabilize…

Tangent pile wall

A tangent pile wall is a special construction method used in civil engineering to build retaining walls, excavations and foundations. The construction consists of a series of bored piles that are driven into the ground so closely together that they touch at the edges but do not overlap. This arrangement results in a stable and…

Secant pile wall

An secant pile wall is often used for retaining walls, excavations or foundations. It consists of a series of bored piles that are driven into the ground close together so that their diameters overlap. The overlapping results in a continuous wall that is both stable and watertight. The secant pile wall consists of primary and…
