This document specifies the terminology, requirements, basic performance criteria, test methods and evaluation of conformity that will be applied to precast concrete foundation piles, factory produced for building and civil engineering works and installed at the site by the use of impact, vibration, pressing or other suitable techniques. This document may also be applied to products manufactured in temporary plants on site where production is controlled in accordance with the provisions and is protected against adverse weather conditions as necessary.
This document applies to foundation piles produced in a plant as reinforced or prestressed concrete elements. The cross-section may be solid or provided with a hollow core, either prismatic or cylindrical. The crosssection may be constant over the full length or tapered partly or wholly along the pile or pile segment length.
