Abstract: In the design and installation of piling in the New York City area for the support of structures, numerous problems have been encountered. They result, principally, from the highly diversified and complex soil and foundation conditions prevailing in the areas requiring piling and from the lack of applicability of the types of piles used for the conditions involved. Several factors affecting the problems involved with piling in the New York area, such as relaxation, influences of size and shape of piling, pile loading, and the sloping rock conditions, are examined, and specific cases pertaining to each are described.
