Advantages of Steel Piles:
Steel piles have a large bearing capacity.
Steel piles can penetrate through stiff layers or boulders.
The volume of soil displaced during the driving of steel piles is less.
Steel piles can withstand rough handling.
Disadvantages of Steel Piles:
Steel piles have a high possibility of damage from corrosion and electrolysis.
Steel piles are relatively expensive unless the bearing stratum can develop large pile capacity.
Steel piles are less effective than friction piles.
