The course will look at the information required to provide a design for simple shallow foundations and piles.
The methods used for the foundation design calculations will be in accordance with those described in the current British Standards (Eurocodes) including an introduction to limit state design and use of partial factors.
Assessment of the use and choice of shallow foundations and piles
Derivation of bearing capacity relationships
Introduction to Limit State Design and Partial Factors
Calculate the working loads and settlement of simple foundations to EC7 concentrating on house foundations
Overview of pile foundations
Ground improvement techniques
The worked examples in this course will largely focus on simple, shallow foundations for domestic buildings.
SPECIALIST GEOTECHNICAL TRAINING PROVIDED TO OVER 1000 GEOTECHNICAL MANAGERS, TECHNICIANS, ENGINEERS AND DRILLERS SINCE 2014
At the end of the course the delegates should be able to:
Assess ground conditions with respect to suitable shallow foundations
Calculate bearing capacity, settlement of simple shallow foundations
Assess ground conditions with respect to piled foundations
Have an appreciation for the use of ground improvement techniques in relation to residential and light industrial developments.
BESPOKE, SPECIALIST TRAINING FACILITIES FOR GEOTECHNICAL COURSES
This course will give a practical introduction to foundation design for geotechnical practitioners and engineers who are becoming involved in foundation design recommendations and who may have only a limited knowledge of geotechnics. They should have, as a minimum a degree in a geology or a ground science.
"Really good course. Good balance between practical and theory. Worked examples were important. Tutor was excellent with a great knowledge of the subject matter and a good training style and delivery."
