Welcome to the Engineers section of our web site. Our objective for this section is to provide as much useful technical information as we can for engineers and architects who are interested in designing projects with helical piles as deep foundation or anchoring solutions. As you can see, currently we have a substantial technical library that includes listings of articles written about helical piles in various applications, a listing of the patents awarded for helical piles, information on U.S. building code compliance, and information on basic helical pile design elements.

We expect and we need this section to grow dramatically as more and more engineers and architects visit our site and begin communicating with us about their knowledge and experiences with helical piles. We invite you to contact Helical Pile World and start a dialogue concerning the world of helical piles.

Below are links and PDF files of relatively recent papers written by HPW Technical Advisory Team members.  We would like to extend an open invitation to professionals in our industry to submit papers to HPW for potential posting on our site.
