TIDC Research to Enhance the Lateral & Torsional Capacity of Helical Piles with a Novel Collar Vane

TIDC researchers are investigating novel solutions to enhance the lateral and torsional capacity of helical piles.  Conventional helical piles are lightweight foundational shafts designed for use in infrastructure assets such as streetlights, signposts, and other foundations. They are quick and easy to install, non-intrusive, less cumbersome, and less expensive than other deep foundation systems, allowing […]
