This manuscript presents the use of recharge impulse technology (RIT) in pile foundations set-up through a case study. More precisely, it discusses the performance brought by such a technique in terms of increasing the bearing capacity of deep foundation systems comparing to classical set-up processes. First, a historical overview about the technology and its contribution in referenced projects is presented. Then, a discussion about the major components behind the performance of such a technique, in pile foundation set-up, comparing to bored and driven piles is highlighted. The final section illustrates the use of RIT through a case study.
