Basics of Foundations Designs
The structure cannot stand without a solid foundation; the base of any construction.
The structure cannot stand without a solid foundation; the base of any construction. Our entire structure is supported on the foundation; therefore we must be extremely cautious while designing foundations.
This course covers all areas of current foundation design best practices. The different types of piles will be discussed. This includes the methods of installation and their consequences, load transmission mechanisms, and the suitability of various pile geometries for various loads and soil conditions
This course will provide clear design processes for piles that can sustain compressive, pullout, and lateral loads. This includes piles installed in cohesive and cohesion less soils different conditions.
