This handbook, Design of Pile Foundations, provides information on foundation exploration and testing procedures, load test methods, analysis techniques, design criteria and procedures, and construction considerations for the selection, design, and installation of pile foundations. While the understanding of pile foundation behavior is actively expanding by ongoing research, this book is based on the present state of technology for pile-soil-structure-foundation interaction behavior. Therefore, this handbook provides design guidance to geotechnical and structural engineers and essential information for others interested in understanding construction techniques related to pile behavior during installation.
