Abstract [en]

This degree project compares piling methods with respect to technical and economic aspects, all affecting factors are measured as realistic as possible. The aim was to get a better understanding for piling methods used in Sweden and to work as an information tool for structural engineers. In order to get the technical aspects on piling methods literature study and interviews with structural engineers from Kadesjös Ingenjörsbyrå AB have been conducted. The case study on a residential building in Västerås was also performed. In this case study calculations for a quantity of piling methods have been made and sent for RFQs for various entrepreneurs. Subsequently piling methods have been analyzed and compared with respect to their prices. By calculating the costs of various piling methods it has been analyzed why some piling methods are more expensive than others. In a layer from soil that is free from rocks and other obstacles the concrete pile is the economically effective piling method for a residential building for both five and thirty meters. The magnificent steel pile is only 5% more expensive than the concrete pile. Note that this degree project is not a cheat sheet for the most economical pile.
