Course Description & Objectives: 

This course aims at cultivating higher level insights in theories for foundation engineering and to promote critical thinking in designing and analyzing foundations. The course will cover classical and modern topics of foundation engineering for example dynamic pile driving equations.                                                                                                                                                                                                     Objectives

  • To equip participants with information needed to design foundations at the state of the art. Participants will be equipped with abilities to evaluate bearing capacity and settlement failure conditions for shallow and deep foundations. Finite Element tools will be discussed as well as conventional design tools.
  • To equip participants with modern instrumentation  for foundation design  and correct selection of  soil parameters for foundation design
  • To enable participants select the best foundation solutions for different types of Civil Engineering problems


Learning Outcomes: 

On completing the course the student should be able to:

  • Design and analyse foundation systems using conventional methods
  • Design a budget and proposal for a Geotechnical investigation
  • Design appropriate foundation systems based on ground-investigation data and be able to select correct soil parameters for the designs
  • Select boring depth , location and associated laboratory tests for simple construction projects
