What is the bearing capacity of foundations for Taipei MRT stations? (Civil Works)

As Taipei MRT stations are built on foundation piles, the design is based on the following considerations: seismic force, wind force, friction, vertical bearing capacity, anti-pull bearing capacity, and examination of soil liquefaction potential, etc. Normal piles are constructed as deep as the bearing layer of hard ground. If stations are built underground, box-type structures will be used.
