H-Piles or Bearing Piles are commonly driven into soil and used for deep foundations to support
structures such as bridges and buildings, where loads are normally compressive. They are rugged
and can be utilized for driving in soil conditions that other piling couldn't begin to penetrate.
Their ductility makes H-piles ideally suited for foundations in seismic areas. H-piles are also commonly
used for "soldier beam and lagging" construction in braced excavations such as building and subway foundations.
