Uncased Cast-in-Situ Concrete Piles – Types and Uses

Uncased cast in situ piles are used where the ground does not disturb the pile hole with soil or water falling in it. They are cheaper than the cased piles but not as much as efficient than cased piles. Skilled workers ...

Vibration Analysis of Machine Foundations

Machine Foundation is subjected to dynamic loads. These loads develop the vibratory motions which will transmit into the soil below the foundation. The effect on soil caused by these vibrations is analyzed using principles of soil dynamics and theory of ...

CONCRETE PEDESTAL – FUNCTIONS, USES AND CONSTRUCTION

What is a Concrete Pedestal? A concrete pedestal is a compression element provided to carry the loads from supported elements like columns, statues etc. to footing below the ground. It is generally provided below the metal columns. In general pedestal ...

TYPES OF FOUNDATION FAILURE UNDER LOADS

Types of foundation failure depend on the load it is subjected to. A foundation can fail in three different ways under loads and they are:Punching shear failure of foundation One-way shear failure of foundation Flexure failure ...

DESIGN OF REINFORCED CONCRETE FOUNDATIONS

Reinforced concrete foundations are designed based on column loads and moments at base and the soil data. Following are the types of foundations in order of preference with a view to economy: (i) Individual footings (isolated footing) (ii) Combined footings (combination of ...

ISOLATED FOOTING DESIGN GUIDELINES

Specifications for Design of footings as per IS 456: 2000 The important guidelines given in IS 456: 2000 for the design of isolated footings are as follows: Footings is designed to sustain the applied loads, moments and forces and the induced reactions ...

BALANCED FOOTINGS AND CANTILEVER FOOTINGS

A balanced footing which is also called as strap footings consists of two separate footings connected by a strap beam. Balanced footing is required where the one of the footing has limited space for bearing, or if there is any ...

Different Types of Machine Foundations and their Uses

Machine foundations are special types of foundations required for machines, machine tools and heavy equipments which have wide range of speeds, loads and operating conditions. These foundations are designed considering the shocks and vibrations (dynamic forces) resulting from operation of ...
