Micropiles in Malaysia

Micropiles were fiist introduced into Malaysia in the late 1970s by French contractors to support to a new RC framed structure constructed inside a 100-year-old building supported by masonry spread foundations that were in turn supported by bakau timber piles. Since then, the development and application of micropiles have progressed by leaps and bounds. The first piles were 150mm in dimeter but rapid development in the last 2 decades has resulted in the present generation of piles of up to 300mm in diameter. The piles are presently applied in underpinning work as well as new foundations. Chan & Ting presented a state-of-the-art report. This paper seeks to highlight the main features of the piles. W.H. Ting and L.Y. Tai
