Experiments,methods of applying grouted jetted precast concrete sheet piles

Wenwei Xiao


Grouted jetted precast concrete piling is definitely an innovative technology that enhances the efficiency of piling operations in coastal regions.We have includes casting concrete piles factory,jetting to operate a vehicle the concrete piles with a crane over a floating ship or platform into soil,and grouting to further improve the sheet pile connections and raise the pile bearing capacity.This technology was put on many piling construction projects at the mouth from the Yellow River Delta in China.This experience demonstrated that it's a robust,fast track,cost-effective,and environmentally friendly piling method.
