Using a combination of vertical and driven raking piles, a foundation solution can be provided that efficiently caters for the vertical and horizontal actions associated with bridge abutments, piers and many other structures. Precast concrete raking piles come in a number of different section sizes (up to 450 mm square), with reinforcement arrangements available to satisfy a range of design requirements. Their offsite manufacture provides several benefits with respect to QA, reduced energy and carbon consumption, durability and low waste, while their installation benefits from no spoil production. The purpose of driven raking piles is to sustain the majority of the horizontal loads.
