Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) technique

During Continuous Flight Augering (CFA), the drilled hole is produced by drilling the auger into the foundation soil without any additional piping. The drilling waste in the auger prevents the drilled hole from collapsing when the drill string is pulled out.
