Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unbiased, comprehensive review of helical pile technology and applications

Helical piles have risen from being merely an interesting alternative for special cases to a frequently requested, more widely accepted deep foundation adopted into the 2009 International Building Code. The first alternative to manufacturer-produced manuals, Howard Perko's Helical Piles: A Practical Guide to Design and Installation answers the industry's need for an unbiased and universally applicable text dedicated to the design and installation of helical piles, helical piers, screw piles, and torque anchors.

Fully compliant with ICC-Evaluation Services, Inc., Acceptance Criteria for Helical Foundation Systems and Devices (AC358), this comprehensive reference guides construction professionals to manufactured helical pile systems and technology, providing objective insights into the benefits of helical pile foundations over driven or cast foundation systems, and recommending applications where appropriate. After introducing the reader to the basic features, terminology, history, and modern applications of helical pile technology, chapters discuss:

  • Installation and basic geotechnics

  • Bearing and pullout capacity

  • Capacity verification through torque

  • Axial load testing, reliability, and sizing

  • Expansive soil and lateral load resistance

  • Corrosion and life expectancy

  • Foundation, earth retention, and underpinning systems

  • Foundation economics

  • Select proprietary systems

  • IBC and NYC Building codes

Covering such issues of concern as environmental sustainability, Helical Piles provides contractors and engineers as well as students in civil engineering with a practical, real-world guide to the design and installation of helical piles.

Book News Annotation:

Helical piles consist of steel shafts with attached pitched steel plates that are screwed into the ground and are used for foundational support for structures. In this book, Perko (Colorado State U.) presents an introduction to helical pile technology and its applications. He covers the basics of installation and geotechnics, as well as more advanced topics related to bearing capacity, pullout capacity, capacity-to-torque ratio, axial loading, reliability sizing, expansive soil resistance, lateral load resistance, corrosion and life expectancy, foundation systems, earth retention systems, underpinning systems, economics, proprietary systems, and building codes.

Synopsis:

Less invasive than a traditional poured foundation, using helical piles as a foundation gains points in the USGBC's LEED rating system, making this an important green building technology. Helical Pile Sourcebook offers a practical, real-world approach to the design and installation of helical piles. With unbiased and non-proprietary coverage of the technology and available products, it reviews existing proprietary systems and discusses their pros and cons, as well as when to use helical pile technology over other foundation types. This is an essential resource for students and professionals in engineering, architecture, and construction.
