Large structures must often be supported by stronger soils and rock formations located far below the Earth's surface. A number of options exist for reaching these depths without excavation, including pilings and drilled shafts. Exploring these various methods from an engineering as well as a constructability perspective, the "Deep Foundations Handbook" explains and outlines the uses, abuses, advantages, and disadvantages of different types of deep foundation technologies. This book provides the information that readers need to decide the most advantageous deep foundation to use. It discusses materials used on new piling types and proprietary pilings and compares them to the conventional ones.
