Patient discussion about pile

Q. What are hemorrhoids?

A. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal. This common problem can be painful, but it’s usually not serious.

Veins can swell inside the anal canal to form internal hemorrhoids. Or they can swell near the opening of the anus to form external hemorrhoids. You can have both types at the same time. The symptoms and treatment depend on which type you have.

(2) The piles are long enough for avoiding the failure mode of the piled slope with slip surface passing by their bottoms.
Thus, the average settlement of piled foundations, [w.sub.g], may be expressed as follows:
To better simulate the actual mechanism of failure, numerical methods including the finite element method and the finite difference method have been developed quickly and are becoming increasingly popular for piled slope analysis based on the shear strength reduction method.
When piles are used as settlement reducers, the objective of the piled raft design is to achieve an economic foundation by minimizing the number of piles while fully utilizing their bearing capacity.
