Synopsis:

Advanced design approaches for selected types of foundation pits and footings, design based on soil - structure interaction.

Requirements:

135GSM Geology and Soil Mechanics

135FS01 Foundation of Structures 01

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction, design considerations of selected structures, principles of computer codes application

2. Examples of geotechnical constructions and potential risk identification

3. Eurocode 7: Principles for geotechnical design and worked examples

4. Piles I. - action of combined loads (rigid / flexible pile)

5. Piles II. - pile group

6. Footing slab I. - design with respect to soil - structure interaction

7. Footing slab II. - piled raft, example and discussion

8. Foundation pit design, sloped / sheeted foundation pit, de-watering, anchor systems

9. Retaining structures, composite and diaphragm walls loading stages, deformations

10. Geotechnical monitoring in foundation engineering - examples of application

11. Geotechnical monitoring - preconditions, instrumentation

12. Trial test, discussion and evaluation

13. Site investigation, soil/rock data and geotechnical site model

14. Faults in foundation engineering, remedial actions, case histories

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Spread footing - sensitivity to site conditions and selection of partial safety factors

2. Limit states of pile subjected to vertical load - different site conditions

3. Limit states of pile subjected to horizontal load - rigid / flexible pile, free / constrained pile head

4. Computer lab for geotechnical design - selected types of structures - introduction

5. Soil-structure interaction - retaining wall with tieback anchors

6. Retaining walls - stability considerations with respect to different site conditions

7. Retaining wall design in inclined area - arrangement of working space, slope stability, design related to selected site conditions and construction stages

8. Soil-structure interaction - footing mat in selected site conditions

9. Geotechnical monitoring - ideas of monitoring design for selected case histories

Study Objective:

Understanding of design methods for shallow footings, piles, retaining structures, foundation pits, sheet pile walls, anchors and soil improvement, principles of monitoring in foundation engineering.
