Panel Discussion

CFA Pile - A System Changeover and Risk Assessment & Mitigation

DFI of India has provided local proof of success of CFA pile installation in Indian soil conditions with India labor. The successful implementation program produced design guidance, installation procedures, video documentation, and monitoring and testing verification. DFI India developed a detailed Manual on DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF CONTINUOUS FLIGHT AUGERED CONCRETE PILE. You can access the content pages of the manual HEREYou can also download an OVERVIEW document on CFA Piles HERE
'Barriers must be overcome for the system benefits to be widely realized in India, including lack of trained engineers to develop specifications for owners, shortage of proven Indian case histories, and limited availability of CFA kit and tooling. This panel discussion will present realistic, proactive strategies to overcome these barriers and increase the use of CFA piles. The panellists are drawn from the important disciplines of the foundation design and construction as detailed below.
