This course is useful for both UG and PG student. The course is also suitable for students who are preparing for competitive examination. Field Engineers can be benefited from this course as the design of foundations under critical conditions (those are not generally covered in UG core foundation engineering course) will be discussed here.
INTENDED AUDIENCE : UG and PG students. Research Scholars and Practicing Engineers can also take this course.
PREREQUISITES : BE Students can take after completing third year or after completing “Soil Mechanics” and “Foundation Engineering” courses. ME and PhD students can take during first semester of their course work.
INDUSTRIES SUPPORT : Most of the Civil Engineering companies
Week 1: Introduction, planning of soil exploration for different projects, methods of borings along with various penetration tests, geophysical soil exploration.
Week 2: Shallow foundations, methods of estimating bearing capacity of footings and rafts, foundations under eccentric loading.
Week 3: Foundations under inclined loading, foundations on slope, foundations with tilted base.
Week 4: Bearing capacity of foundations on layered soil.
