IMPROVING BEARING CAPACITY OF SOIL

Selecting methods of improving bearing capacity of soils is necessary in many cases for the construction of foundation. Soil investigation is carried out to establish existing ground conditions and soil properties for selection of suitable foundation types for the structure. ...

PILE FOUNDATION SELECTION BASED ON SOIL CONDITIONS

Pile foundation selection depends on the soil data received from soil exploration bore holes at different depths. Selection of pile foundation types and length depends on following conditions:Soil conditions Loads from structures Nature of loads Number of piles to be used Cost of constructionThere are ...

CAPACITY OF PILE GROUP AND EFFICIENCY

Capacity of pile group is the sum of the individual capacities of piles, but it is influenced by the spacing between the piles. Piles are driven generally in groups in regular pattern to support the structural loads. The structural load is ...

PILE FOUNDATION – NEED AND FUNCTIONS

Pile foundation is required when the soil bearing capacity is not sufficient for the structure to withstand. This is due to the soil condition or the order of bottom layers, type of loads on foundations, conditions at site and operational ...

DETERMINING DEPTH OF FOUNDATION

Many factors affects the determination of depth of foundation. Calculation for foundation depth is done based on type of soil, ground water table, loads from structure, bearing capacity of soil and other factors. General factors to be considered for determining depth ...

Types of Foundations for Buildings and their Uses in Construction

There are different types of foundation for building construction and their uses depends on soil condition and loads from the structure. It is advisable to know suitability of each types of foundation before making any decision for their selection in any ...

PILE LOAD CAPACITY CALCULATION

Pile load capacity calculation is done to find the ultimate load the pile foundation can support when loaded. It is also known as the bearing capacity of piles. Pile load capacity calculation is done for single pile or a group ...

CONTINUOUS FLIGHT AUGER (CFA) PILES

Continuous Flight Auger (CFA) Piles are also known as augercast piles, augered cast-in-place piles (ACIP), auger-pressure grout piles, drilled displacement piles and screw piles. Continuous flight auger piles is a type of drilled foundation in which the pile is ...

FOUNDATION SELECTION CRITERIA FOR BUILDINGS

Selection criteria for foundation for buildings depend on two factors, i.e. factors related to ground (soil) conditions and factors related to loads from the structure. The performance of foundation is based on interface between the loadings from the structure and ...
