This is fhwa-nhi-05-039 two of the series that covers the following Chapters:.

Your single point of reference for all your Geotechnical Inquiries

The attendees will gain a general knowledge of the design, construction and performance of micropile foundation system. This two-part fhwa-nhi-05-039 discusses micropile fhwa-nhi-05-039, design concepts, problems associated fhwa-nhi-05-039 the common installation methods, specifications, construction control and performance of this pile system.

The advantages of micropiles are that their installation procedure causes minimal vibration and noise, they can be installed in difficult ground conditions, and they can be used in fhwa-nhi-05-039 with low headroom and restrictive access. Once you finish studying fhwa-nhi-05-039 above course content you need to take a quiz to obtain the PDH credits.


Micropile can be designed as soil frictional piles or rock socketed piles either under tension or compression. Please click on fhwa-nhi-05-039 above underlined hypertext to view, download or print the document for your study.

Micropile Design and Construction – Part II &Architects

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding fhwa-nhi-05-039 course materials. This course presents the general fhwa-nhi-05-0339 on micropile selection, application, benefit, design, construction, cost and testing fhwa-nhi-05-039 micropile foundations.

Mircopiles are primarily used as elements for foundation fhwx-nhi-05-039 to resist static and dynamic loading conditions, and less frequently as in-situ reinforcements for fhwa-nhi-05-039 and excavation stability. A micropile is a small diameter typically 5″ — 12″ fhwa-nhi-05-039, drilled and grouted pile with reinforcement.

For fhwa-nhi-05-039 course, you are required to study Chapters 5 and 6 of the following document.

In general, micropiles are fhwa-nhi-05-039 when there are problems with using conventional deep foundation systems fhwa-nhi-05-039 driven piles, drilled shafts, or augercast piling. Worldwide use of micropiles fhwa-nhi-05-039 grown since their original development in the s, and in particular since the fhwa-nhi05-039.

Designed to carry compressive or tensile loads, micropiles are high-performance piles that can achieve working loads over tons and extend fjwa-nhi-05-039 fhwa-nhi-05-039 of feet. Because of the large file size, we recommend that you first save the file to your computer by right-clicking the mouse and choosing “Save Target As The drilling fhwa-nhi-05-039 and installation methods allow micropiles to be drilled through natural and artificial fhwa-nhi-05-039 condition with minimal vibration, disturbance and noise and at any angle below horizontal.


This makes micropiles the preferred fhwa-nhi-05-039 of foundation system for retrofitting existing structures in challenging areas. The load is mainly accepted by fhwa-nhi-05-039 steel casing fhwa-nhi-05-039 transferred via the grout to the surrounding rock or soil by high values of interfacial friction with minimal end bearing components, as in the case for ground anchors and soil nails. This course is intended for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers, construction professionals and contractors.

Micropiles are commonly made up fhwa-nhi-05-039 high strength fhwa-nhi-05-039 casing and rebar, but can also be installed in some soil conditions using pressure grouted all-thread self-drilling hollow bar systems.
