Foundation work is not the glamorous side of home building. It is hard, dirty work. But its also the work upon which all other work rests, and so a good foundation is critical to every home. No source of knowledge on foundations and concrete work isMoreFoundation work is not the glamorous side of home building. No source of knowledge on foundations and concrete work is better respected or more widely followed than that provided by the authors of Fine Homebuilding magazine. This latest edition from the editors of Fine Homebuilding is the biggest and most authoritative volume yet on the subject. At pages with more than illustrative on-the-job photographs and drawings, Foundations and Concrete Work distills centuries of hands-on builder-tested methods and techniques as the finest builders in the country pass on the hard-won trade secrets for better construction.
This is an important design standard for geotechnical and structural engineers, setting out the fundamental rules that should be followed in the design of both shallow and deep foundations. It gives recommendations for the design, construction, testing, monitoring and maintenance of foundations in accordance with BS EN The foundation types covered include spread foundations, pile foundations including helical pile foundations and underpinning. Multi-user access to over 3, medical device standards, regulations, expert commentaries and other documents. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world.
Post-grouting, in the context of this workshop and report, refers to the alternative design and construction of base-grouted drilled shafts wherein a grout distribution system is installed during construction and used to grout the base under pressure after the drilled shaft concrete has gained adequate strength, resulting in a stiffer axial-compression load-displacement relationship and additional possible ground improvement effects. This report is structured to follow the workshop program: workshop presentations outlined the state of practice and views from owners, engineers and contractors on acceptance of post grouting methods for drilled shafts; and subsequent workshop discussions attended by a small invited group of participants focused on identifying areas of agreement and disagreement on post-grouting best practices, acceptance criteria, design and verification procedures, and inspection requirements. A partial list of attendees of the open and closed sessions is provided as Appendix A, and copies of presentations are included as Appendix B. FHWA and Caltrans are the primary audiences for this report, and its content will be used to develop a roadmap for deploying the findings into policy and practice. The secondary audience is the broader industry group, and the report content will be disseminated in a variety of formats.
This paper will review some of the challenges faced by designers of foundations for very tall buildings, primarily from a geotechnical viewpoint.
