Pile Cap

A pile cap could be a thick concrete mat that rests on concrete or timber piles that are driven into soft or unstable ground to supply an acceptable stable foundation. it always forms a part of the inspiration of a building, sometimes a multi-story building, structure or support base for serious instrumentation. The solid concrete pile cap distributes the load of the building into the piles.an analogous structure to a pile cap could be a "raft",that could be a concrete foundation floor resting directly onto soft soil which can be vulnerable to subsidence.
