<h4>Technical Guidance Note (Level 2, No. 8): Designing a pile-cap</h4>

Technical Guidance Note (Level 2, No. 8): Designing a pile-cap

This note concerns the design of pile-caps for small groups of piles. It relies on the strut-and-tie method to determine the amount of reinforcement required in the pile-cap; which is dependent upon the depth of the cap, the magnitude of the axial load being placed upon it, the cap’s concrete strength and the pile size and spacing.
