K-FC Pile/K-FC II Pile (Negative Skin Friction reduction Pile)
Piles used in soft ground are subject to negative skin friction as consolidation settlement progresses. This negative skin friction can be reduced by using K-FC piles or K-FC II piles. They have been widely used in soft ground and reclaimed land in coastal areas.
- Bridge foundations
- Building foundations
- River structures
- Greatly Reduces Negative Skin Friction
- K-FC piles and K-FC II piles can greatly reduce negative skin friction on piles.
- High Cost Performance
- This is a very economical option because fewer piles are needed, with smaller pile diameters and wall thicknesses, than other negative skin friction-control piles.
