Peculiarities of the Piles Test for High Rise Buildings

(Issue of a magazine 6/2011, page 96)

High-rise buildings, as rule, have deep foundations with bearing structures like piles or barrettes (rectangular piles). A foundation depth for highrise buildings is 40-120 m depending on a depth of solid ground layers. A pile structure with length more than 50 m is the beyond a mass design and requires a specific approach for all stages of development and design, including engineering- geological survey.In 2008 in Sankt-Petersburg survey and design works were started for a 79-storey tower of public and business centre “Ohta” of 396 m in the height.

A constant rise of costs for energy resources and depletion of world natural resources set a task for mankind to find alternative energy sources. It should be noted that Europe has been developing this direction more than 30 years. And our country understood too that we shouldn’t just consumer natural resources but give back too. A company actively implementing up-to-date methods of heating and cooling of buildings is the corporation Uponor, which has introduced a new product in the Russian market providing alternative energy usage this year.

In mind of a “regular” citizen of our country the word “skyscraper” and the notion of “energy efficiency”, as a rule, have nothing in common. Moreover, some citizens having special concern of “saving” Russia from the collapse of the power resources and advocate for energy savings are proponents of freezing the erection of not only high-rise, but simply unique buildings with large glazing area.

In the last half-century we have witnessed an unprecedented boom in the construction of tall buildings and special structures, in aspects related to their architectural complexity, freedom of expression and structural sophistication. This is without doubt due to the remarkable revolution in our improved state-of-the-art design tools. More accurate and realistic numerical methods today allow for a greater certainty than ever before, the means to predict how a given structure would behave in extreme loading conditions.
