29 PILEUF Information General Each pile record contains general description of the site location, together with pier or bent number (if available). Four pile types were selected to describe the piles within the database based on shape and materials. The four categories were: 1. Square concrete pile 2. Round concrete pile 3. Pipe pile 4. H-pile The geometry of the piles was described by the pile width, total length, embedded length, and cross sectional area. In addition, the dates when the piles were driven and tested were recorded. Soil Classification The soil information includes the soil stratigraphy (description and properties) with in-situ tests such as SPT, CPT, etc. Nine soil types were used to allow consideration of several combinations of cohesive and non-cohesive soil. The nine soil categories were presented according to the following numbering: 1. Plastic clay 2. Silt-sand-clay, silts and marls
