Barrettes


This technique is a type of drilled and cast-in-place pile, the distinctive characters of which are the shape and way of drilling. Grab-bucket or Hydrofraise type drilling tools are used. The size of these tools determines that of the piles. The drilling is generally done under a bentonitic slurry, like a classical diaphragm wall. Due to their shape the advantages are the following: better resistance to horizontal stress and to bending moments, easy adjustment to structures allowing for one element to be sufficient under each bearing unit and better mobilisation of lateral friction due to a larger perimeter.
