In many projects, piles are designed and installed as the ultimate solution in foundation construction, load transition to the resistant subsurface layers, providing lateral resistance, and overcoming the poor performance of surface soils. Pile design should be done with respect to structural consideration, the load-carrying capacity of the surface...
