Course objectives
Learning objectives and competences: * To teach students how to design shallow and deep foundations for different geotechnical cathegories. * To provide students with basic knowledge about safe and economical design of foundation pit. * To acquaint students with modern foundation methods and subsoil improvement methods. Introduction - backgrounds. Methodology of limit states, geotechnical categories. Shallow footings - spread footings, strip footings, slabs. Design and check of shallow footings - 1st limit state, 2nd limit state. Deep foundations - division of elements. Piles - distribution (displacement, replacement). Drilled piles, CFA - technology of building. Design of axial loaded bored piles - limit bearing capacity, limit loading curve. Uncased piles - building technology. Vibropiles. Micropiles - types, building technology, utilization. Diaphragm walls and lamellas - building technology and utilization. Anchors - distribution, design and construction methods, anchor prestressing. Jet grouting - technology, recovery. Classical injection - sealing. hardening, compensation, injection materials. Foundation pits and their timbering. Braces sheeting, pile walls, diaphragm walls. Cofferdams. Static design of foundation pit timbering. Foundation pit dewatering. Underpinning.
Learning outcomes
After successful completion of the course the student should be able to: - design shallow and deep foundations for different geotechnical cathegories. - Design a safe and economical design of foundation pit.. - have an overview about modern foundation methods and subsoil improvement methods.
