Piering, also known as piling, is the method of inserting steel pipe into the foundation. This works like a support to the building. It is a quick remedy, preventing the building into falling. Further, foundation settlements are corrected by this technique as well.
Piers are divided into two categories. They are:
- Push piers – Here, the steel pipe has galvanized parts. The entire pipe is forcefully put into the soil with the help of a hydraulic ram.
- Helical piers – This is a combination of screw piles and steel shafts. The main area is joined with one or more helixes. This improves the holding capacity of the foundation. Since it consists of screws, the screws are inserted into the ground with the help of a hydraulic torque motor.
For both the systems, one or more steel piers are dug deep into the soil and are joined to the foundation. A metal device joins the piers to the foundation. After the whole setup is done, each pile is put to test. While testing, more force is applied than usual to check whether it can provide support to the building.
