A special structure of reinforced concrete flexible anchor pile with widening at the end has been used in engineering practice in the past few years. Laboratory semifull and full-scale experiments were made in order to study the performance of such piles. Method of making construction calculations has been developed as a result of the experiments. This method is based on the elasticity theory. Equations have been developed to determine a pile's capacity to carry pulling load due to acceptable displacement into the soil.
