Undefined pile type

A pile is a slender timber, concrete, or steel structural element, driven, jetted, or otherwise embedded on end in the ground for the purpose of supporting a load. A pile is also characterized as deep foundation, where the loads are transfered to deeper subsurface layers.

An undefined pile type is a placeholder pile for when the pile type has not yet been determined.
