The Use of Small Diameter Inserts as Piles and Insitu Reinforcement
Dr. Donald A. Bruce; Nicholson Construction Company

The use of small diameter cast-in-place bored piles is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Such inserts are used as conventional load bearing piles, and are generally referred to as pin piles. The other major application is for the in situ reinforcement of soil slopes or excavations. The paper reviews the applications, construction, design and performance of inserts of each type.
