Course Description

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.

Course 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
