Cercetări privind utilizarea piloţilor din lemn

Ioana Tataru

Rezumat/Abstract. According to the research, it seems that the first people who used the idea of „pile” belonged to a tribe from the Neolithic period, who lived on the current location of Switzerland, 6.000 years ago. Around 1620 BC, the Romans built a wooden bridge over the Tiber River in Rome, which lasted more than 1.000 years. Also, some Roman roads and aqueducts were supported by wood piles who were still in good condition 1900 years later. But, nowadays, wooden piles are especially used for industrial and commercial foundations, at bridges infrastructures, ports, marine constructions.
