Civil Engineering/Piles dia & load capacity-reg


Good Day:
Shall I get a reference for getting the pile diameters and the max load capacity on each piles.Thanks & Regards

Hi Ravi,

I am not sure what you are asking, but the pile capacity depends on several factors including the soil conditions and properties, whether the pile is to be friction type or end-bearing type and the class of concrete and amount of rebar in the pile.
