Method Descriptions Overview

The special civil engineering belongs to the kind of industries whose work usually remains invisible, like e.g. foundation piles, shoring works etc.

On these website various procedures of special civil engineering are described. They show how the machines work and what happens while working e.g. in the soil.

The small knowledge collection is divided in four categories:

Piling and Extracting

Piling and extracting of piles with a vibrator is the most commonly spread procedure in civil engineering. Sheet pile walls, vibro piles, vibro stone columns, soldier beam walls can be installed. Learn more

Drilling

The application of the drilling procedures is very versatile. They are used for production of drillings with or without casing and for soil mixing processes. Among the classical drilling procedures belong the installation of CFA piles, Kelly and the VDW drilling (in front of the wall). Learn more

Pressing

The ABI Hydro-Press-System enables the static pressing of steel sheet piles and it is used on sites where noise and vibration emissions must be reduced to a minimum. Learn more

Impacting

Impacting procedures can be used in almost all kind of soils. Diesel pile hammers and hydraulic impact hammers are usually used. These procedures are suitable for back driving or for embedding piles at rock layers. The use of impacting procedures is also necessary for the proof of load bearing capacity.
