Micropiles are piles with a diameter of less than 60 cm. Using includes support structures near the underground excavation, stabilization of slopes and retaining walls forming.
Micro piles are installed in the ground at different angles in order to strengthen the soil. In first row they are the pressure elements and commonly used to improve load, but can bear shear stress and limited extent bending. Micro piles can be installed to a depth of 30 m and more. Performance includes drilling, installation of reinforcement cage and injection.
Monitoring includes geodetic observation shifts or set inclinometers.
