The Underpinning of Distressed Foundation

 This presentation describes the basic concept of the underpinning of distressed foundations. It deals with the temporary and permanent support to existing foundations in order to provide additional depth or to increase the soil’s bearing capacity. The intent is to support the structure without failure and without settlement that would be detrimental to its integrity or function. Many types of foundation underpinning are reviewed and methods of analysis are presented under a variety of soil and foundation conditions. Construction processes are also referenced based on specific projects. The Underpinning of Foundations deals with the temporary and permanent support to existing foundations in order to provide additional depth or to increase the soil’s bearing capacity. Underpinning is a repair process that strengthens foundations which have been weakened by a variety of factors. In the process of underpinning, the area underneath the load of the foundation is repaired, made strong or reinforced. Underpinning comes in many types and suits different kinds of repair projects. In order to make the right choice, it is necessary to understand the structure of the whole foundation, the supports used and the factors that cause the foundation to crack or get damaged.
