For this course, you are required to study Chapters 5 and fhw-nhi-05-039 fhwa-nhi the following document. This course includes a fhwa-nhi quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. Micropile can be designed as soil frictional fhwa-nhi or rock socketed fhwa-nhi either under tension or compression.

The advantages of micropiles are that their installation fhwa-nhi causes minimal vibration and noise, they can be installed in difficult ground conditions, and they can be used in areas with low headroom and restrictive access.

Micropiles are commonly made up of high strength steel casing and rebar, but can also be installed in some fhwa-nhi conditions using fhwa-nhi grouted all-thread self-drilling hollow bar systems.

Designed to carry fhwa-nhi-05–039 or fhwa-nhi loads, micropiles are high-performance piles that can achieve working loads over tons and extend to depths of feet.

This fhwa-nhi is intended for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers, construction professionals and fhwa-nhi Worldwide fhwa-nhi-0-5039 fhwa-nhi micropiles has grown since their original development in the fhwa-nhi, and in particular since the mids.

This course presents the general guidelines on micropile selection, fhwa-nhhi-05-039, fhwa-nhi, design, construction, cost and testing of micropile foundations. The load is mainly accepted by the steel casing and transferred via the fhwa-nhi to the surrounding rock or fhwa-nhi by high values of interfacial friction with minimal fhwa-nhi bearing components, as in the case for ground anchors and soil nails.

The drilling equipment and installation methods allow micropiles to be drilled through natural and artificial ground condition with minimal vibration, disturbance and noise and at any angle below horizontal. In general, micropiles are applicable fhwa-nhi-0-039 there fhwa-nhi problems with using conventional deep foundation systems like driven piles, drilled shafts, or augercast fhwa-nhi Mircopiles are primarily used as elements for foundation support to resist static and dynamic loading conditions, and less frequently fhwa-nhi in-situ reinforcements for slope and excavation stability.

This is part two of the fhwa-nhi that covers the following Chapters:. This two-part series discusses micropile classifications, design concepts, problems associated with the common installation methods, specifications, construction control and performance of this pile system.

The attendees fhwa-nhi gain a general knowledge of the design, construction and performance of micropile foundation system. Please click on the above underlined hypertext to view, fhwa-hhi-05-039 or print the document for your study. Once you finish studying the above course content you need to take a quiz to obtain the PDH credits.
