Drilled shafts, also known as drilled piers, caissons, bored piles, or cast-in-drilled hole piles (CIDH), are high-capacity deep foundation systems. A drilled shaft is constructed by drilling a cylindrical borehole to design diameter and depth, lowering reinforcing steel (rebar) into the drilled shaft, and then filing the shaft concrete. The finished foundation element resists compression, tension, and lateral loads.

Access conditions required for drilled shaft construction are a variable as the diameters and depths to which they can be drilled. Drilled shafts can be constructed in low headroom and limited access and provide effective support for most structures, including buildings, tanks, towers, and bridges.
