AbstractThe high population density in Hong Kong necessitates the adoption of heavy infrastructures and high-rise buildings for public and private uses. These heavy infrastructures and high-rise buildings require the support of pile foundations. Among different pile types, the prestressed spun high strength concrete (PHC) pile is probably the most economical. Moreover, it has a smaller carbon footprint than the steel H-pile of comparable design load-carrying capacity. Installation of PHC piles by percussion is probably the most economical. However, noise, vibration and air pollution problems are often inseparable from percussion of piles. Innovative installation techniques for PHC piles to achieve environmental friendliness, quality and rapid construction, and economy are always in demand. Depending on geologic conditions, different innovative installation techniques for PHC piles have been developed and these techniques are presented in this paper.
