Further Foundation Design

Course Outline.

This one-day course compliments the Basic Foundation Design course and concentrates on more detailed worked examples of geotechnical design to EC7 for both shallow foundations and pile groups.

The course provides delegates with a knowledge of the approved approaches used for foundation design calculations used in EC7 and comprises worked examples which concentrate on shallow and piled foundations for advanced structures and requirements.

It includes an analysis of the equations used and design approaches using limit state and partial factors.
