Pile Foundation & Types of Pile Foundation

Pile Foundation Foundations provide support to the structure and transfer the weight or loads from the structure to the soil, and therefore the layer at which the foundation transfers the load should have an adequate bearing capacity and suitable settlement characteristics. Types of Pile Foundations Types of the foundation are mainly divided into two types:…

Definition of Foundation Settlement & Common Causes of Foundation Settlement

What is Foundation Settlement? The settlement of the foundation soil is a vertical displacement of the soil surface caused by the building’s workload. Foundation settlement happens when soil moves below the stricture or the home. When the soil is no longer able to bear the weight of the structure above it, it will heave and cause movement in…
