\u2022Micropiles can be defined as small diameter piles,
typically less than 150mm, where the pile load is carried
structurally predominantly by the pile reinforcement.
Hence micropiling is often relatively heavily reinforced
with a substantial full length central reinforcement bar.
Micropiles are normally grouted due to small volumes.
\u2022Micropiles, also called mini piles, are used for
underpinning. Micropiles are normally made of steel with
diameters of 60 to 200 mm. Installation of micropiles can
be achieved using drilling, impact driving, jacking,
vibrating or screwing machinery.
