The traditional method of beam placement is to drill, install the beam in an open hole and place slurry or sand into the opening. Sand needs to be jetted for a secure beam placement. However, the more economical model, especially if the ground is raveling or caving, is to vibrate a beam directly into the ground for a secure shoring system. If the ground is too hard to vibrate directly, pre-drilling a smaller hole than the outside dimensions of the HP or wide flange beam is employed. Note: the use of boxes is not a shoring system, it's only for worker safety and does not assure that the adjoining ground does not move.
