Site suitability on a building site

Jun 10, 2021Sands vary in particle size and in compaction, and some types of sand have low bearing capacity. If the soil type is sand, piles driven down to a good bearing layer may be required in conjunction with a concrete slab. Expansive clay . Expansive clay increases significantly in volume when wet and shrinks again when dry.

Benefits of Driven Piles

Pile driving is relatively easy in many soils. Since the soil at the toe is in a compacted condition for displacement piles, end bearing can often carry a substantial load. There are no soft bottom soil conditions so large settlements for end bearing piles are eliminated. Driven piles displace and compact the soil.

Deep ripping mechanically breaks up compacted soil layers, however care must be taken to ensure results are effective. Deep ripping uses strong tines working down to 35-50cm depth to loosen hard layers of soil. Tine spacing, working depth, shallow leading tines or discs, soil moisture content, timing and soil type all need to be taken into account.
