The connection(pile head) of pile supporting the building has conventionally been coupled(rigid coupling) by fixing method.
- Clarification of pile head coupling status
It is possible to clarify the status of coupling between pile head and footing.
- Reduced damage in pile head due to earthquake
The centralized stress is reduced at head of pile.
- Reduced sectional area of upper structure
The bending moment to be transmitted from pile to upper structure is reduced radically.
- Rationalized pile foundation design
Since the pile is not rigidly coupled to the upper structure, it is possible to examine the upper structure and lower structure separately.
