The behaviour of foundation is closely interlinked with the behaviour of soil supporting it. This book develops a clear understanding of the soil parameters, bearing capacity, settlement and deformation, and describes the practical methods of designing structural foundations. The book analyses the various types of foundations, namely isolated footing, strip foundation and raft foundation, and their structural design. It discusses piled foundation, the types and behaviour of piles in various soils (cohesive and cohesionless), and their bearing capacity. The book also includes the analysis, design and construction of diaphragm wall foundation used in highway and railway tunnels, multi-storey basement and underground metro stations. In addition, it includes the analysis and design of sheet piling foundation, retaining wall and bridge pier foundation. KEY FEATURES : Demonstrates both BS codes of practice and Eurocodes to analyse soil and structural design of foundations and compares the results Includes a number of examples on foundations Provides structural design calculations with step-by-step procedures Gives sufficient numbers of relevant sketches, figures and tables to reinforce the concepts This book is suitable for the senior undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students specializing in geotechnical engineering. Besides, practising engineers will also find this book useful.

"Shell foundations are economic alternatives to plain foundations in situations involving heavy superstructural loads to be transmitted to weaker soils. The book presents in one volume the geotechnical and structural aspects of design and construction of shell foundations." "Essentially focused on the needs of postgraduate students in geotechnical and structural engineering, the book will be of immense help to research scholars, design professionals, consulting engineers and architects."--BOOK JACKET.

In Foundation Design: Theory and Practice, Professor N. S. V. Kameswara Rao covers the key aspects of the subject, including principles of testing, interpretation, analysis, soil-structure interaction modeling, construction guidelines, and applications to rational design. Rao presents a wide array of numerical methods used in analyses so that readers can employ and adapt them on their own. Throughout the book the emphasis is on practical application, training readers in actual design procedures using the latest codes and standards in use throughout the world. Presents updated design procedures in light of revised codes and standards, covering: American Concrete Institute (ACI) codes Eurocode 7 Other British Standard-based codes including Indian codes Provides background materials for easy understanding of the topics, such as: Code provisions for reinforced concrete Pile design and construction Machine foundations and construction practices Tests for obtaining the design parameters Features subjects not covered in other foundation design texts: Soil-structure interaction approaches using analytical, numerical, and finite element methods Analysis and design of circular and annular foundations Analysis and design of piles and groups subjected to general loads and movements Contains worked out examples to illustrate the analysis and design Provides several problems for practice at the end of each chapter Lecture materials for instructors available on the book's companion website Foundation Design is designed for graduate students in civil engineering and geotechnical engineering. The book is also ideal for advanced undergraduate students, contractors, builders, developers, heavy machine manufacturers, and power plant engineers. Students in mechanical engineering will find the chapter on machine foundations helpful for structural engineering applications. Companion website for instructor resources:
