Timber piling foundation ispection sources


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a reference to a source for inspecting wood timber piling foundations? I'm familiar with the new FEMA 550, foundation manual. I'm looking for a higher source to reference on existing wood timber piling foundations. I've been unsucessful in my search so far - does anyone have any information?

Thanks, Jack

I don't know how much help it will be, but go to the downloads section here on TIJ and check out FM 5-426, the army carpentry manual. They still teach construction of pile foundations in the Army and Chapter 11 of that manual is all about warves and pilings.
