Abstract

The paper deals with case studies of pile failure when cast-in-situ piling systems are adopted. The four commonly used methods of piling are the bailer, direct mud circulation, driven-cast-in-situ and rotary auger system. Failures in each of these cast-in-situ piling systems are discussed based on the failures noted in the initial testing or during execution. The causes for the failure are analyzed and the remedial measures adopted discussed.
