Hello. I am a mechanical engineer, and right now, we are beginning to work on the foundations of a large structure. The structural engineers often refer to different terms, all of which I used to think were different ways of saying "foundation". Can you please explain to me (or direct me to a website with good illustrations) the difference between 'concrete piles' (both cast, and auger, and any others), 'caissons', and 'foundations'? I really appreciate it!
