Deep Reinforced Concrete Pads.

Deep reinforced concrete pads are similar in cross-section to the shallow reinforced pad but are constructed at depth in situations where the suitable sub-strata is not available  at high level. Such pads are not often economic and more cost-effective mass concrete bases or piles and caps are often used. However in some situations they can prove  to be a suitable solution – see Fig. 9.13 which indicates a typical example of such a use.
