Publication Details

The construction of deep foundations includes piles and diaphragm walls for foundations and retaining structures. Depending on ground conditions and load requirements, conventional bored piles can be up to 100m deep. Diaphragm walls with depth up to 50m have been constructed in the past successfully around the globe. Drilling fluids like bentonite or polymers are common to support the excavation of deep foundations. Concrete for deep excavations has different requirements than concrete for superstructures.
