Morning Session:  Analysis & Design of Shallow Foundations Time: 8:30am to 12:30pm  

This seminar/presentation will cover the salient features of the analysis and design of shallow foundations. All structures need to have suitable foundation in or to stand. The main functions of foundation in construction are to provide overall stability for the structure and serve the function of providing a level surface for the construction of substructure. Since all the loads of the structures are finally transmitted to the foundation; there design must be judiciously made. The various types of shallow foundation are isolated footing, combined footing, raft/mat foundation, cantilever footing, grillage foundation and spread footing. A shallow foundation is responsible to transfer a load of the superstructure to the soil at the base of the substructure. If the bearing capacity of the soil is good and the structural load will not cause any settlement of the underlying soil layer, then you should be selected the shallow foundation. A shallow foundation is mostly used for residential building construction purposes. The function of the shallow foundation is to provide adequate support to the building structure which they carry. Foundation should imply load bearing capacity, to safely resist the effects of the various combination of the permanent and transient load transmitted to the founding strata, without any settlement and deformation. Sample calculations will be presented of design of shallow foundation of various types of soil conditions. This presentation will also include practical aspects (thumb rule) of design of shallow foundation. Few illustrations of foundation failures will be done on account of poor design of shallow foundation. Apart from that, discussion will be made on Types of Shallow foundation and their suitability to various types of soil.

The main topics/highlights of this presentation are:

  1. Brief introduction of shallow foundations.
  2. Practical aspects (Thumb rule) of design of shallow foundation.
  3. Illustrations of foundation failures on account of poor design of shallow foundation.
  4. Types of Shallow foundation and their suitability to various types of soil
  5. Sample calculation of design of Shallow foundation.
  6. Comparison between shallow and Deep foundation

Afternoon Session: Analysis & Design of Deep Foundations Time: 1:00pm to 5:00pm 

This seminar/presentation will cover the salient features of the analysis and design of deep foundations. All structures need to have suitable foundation in or to stand. Since all the loads of the structures are finally transmitted to the foundation; there design must be judiciously made. The presentation consists of the brief introduction of deep foundations. A deep foundation is a type of foundation that transfers building loads to the earth farther down from the surface than a shallow foundation does to a subsurface layer or a range of depths. Deep foundation is required to carry loads from a structure through weak compressible soils or fills on to stronger and less compressible soils or rocks at depth, or for functional reasons. Deep foundations are founded too deeply below the finished ground surface for their base bearing capacity to be affected by surface conditions, this is usually at depths >3 m below finished ground level. Deep foundation can be used to transfer the loading to a deeper, more competent strata at depth if unsuitable soils are present near the surface. The various types of deep foundations in general use are hollow box foundations, caissons, cylinders, shaft foundations and pile foundations. Sample calculations will be presented of design of deep foundation of various types of soil conditions. This presentation will also include practical aspects (thumb rule) of design of deep foundation. Few illustrations of foundation failures will be done on account of poor design of deep foundation. Apart from that, discussion will be made on Types of Deep foundation and their suitability to various types of soil.
