ARMY FM 5-134
|Publication Date:||18 April 1985|
Purpose and scope. This manual is organized to be used as a field reference. Chapter 1 through 4 discuss piles, equipment, and installation. Information concerning design (less that of sheet piling structures) is provided in chapter 5 through 7 for use when tactical and logistical situations dictate original design. These chapters are of primary interest to engineer staff officers planning pile construction when the standard installations, facilities, equipment and supplies of the Army Facilities Component System (AFCS) are not used. The appendix presents information on piling materials not currently available through military supply. The glossary contains terms frequently used in pile design and construction, acronyms, and abbreviations used in this manual.
