About this event

Delivered over two days this training course uses notes, presentations, tutorials and delegate discussion to address the key geotechnical and structural criteria for the design of a range of foundation types commonly used for building and civil engineering structures. The emphasis is on the development of practical solutions to design problems, working to current design codes and standards. The course is fully Eurocode compliant.

The geotechnical notes and presentations deal with:

  • Bearing capacity and settlement in spread foundations
  • The conceptual and detailed design of spread foundations for simple and complex loading
  • Geotechical design of piles and pile groups
  • Design of piled foundations including pile layouts, pile cap and ground beam systems
  • Determination of earth pressures on retaining structures
  • Design of reinforced concrete gravity and mass walls, embedded and gabion walls

The notes also include a brief introduction to Eurocodes and their application to foundation design.
