Abstract:

Plastic pilings are economically feasible in specific problem areas where the longevity of standard wooden structures is short since plastic piles possess a potential energy adsorption in excess of 1000 of wood of comparable size. Such pilings are within the state-of-the-art provided existing material can withstand the marine environment. Author-PL
