It was in the earlier s that a concerted effort was made to study and undentand the physical laks governing the behaviour of sub surface materials, i. This is the time when study of soil mechanics was started and it was in when Karl Terzaghi, popularly known as 'father of soil mechanics', made successful attempt to explain the phenomenon of settlement oti a scientific basis.
Though study of soil mechanics has provided us with new techniques for selecting appropriate type of foundation and predicting the behaviour of completed structures, it has not been able to decrease the importance of the accumulated experience of the ages. Amount of uncertainty and degree of variation in the properties of soil and number of parameters on which performance of a foundation depends, make exact solution impractical, if not impossible.
With so much of advancement in science and computer application, structural design is still defined as:I5 a creation of a structuralfonn to satisfy a number of requirements. It is a combination of art and science. As a rule, there is no direct procedure leading to the solution of a specific problem. An engineer uses all his resources of knowledge experience and imagination to produce a trial scheme.
He then constructs a mathematical model of such a solution to assess its adequacy and ifnecessary, modifies the original concept in the light of analytical results.
The process is repeated until the designer is satisfied with thefinalproduct, taking into account not only structural adequacy but also such non-quantifiablefactors as aesthetics, ease of construction and performance. The design process is characterised by a complex interaction of parameters and the need to arrive at decisions based on incomplete data Intuitive decisions which have to be taken, appear to be diametrically opposite to the logical nature of A designer, when faced with a task of designing a raft foundation, finds himself in a precarious position where he has to balance the time available for design, the cost of design, the need of adequate safety and, above all, acceptance of the design by the client and the professional community in general and decide the method of design to be followed by him.
Generally, it is not practical for any designer to go thro. Log in Get Started. If you can't read please download the document. Download for free Report this document. Embed Size px x x x x
This paper will review some of the challenges faced by designers of foundations for very tall buildings, primarily from a geotechnical viewpoint. Some characteristic features of such buildings will be reviewed and then the options for foundation systems will be discussed. A three-stage process of foundation design and verification will be described, and the importance of proper ground characterization and assessment of geotechnical parameters will be emphasised. The application of the foundation design principles will be illustrated via four projects, each of which has presented a different challenge to the designers:. A large number of these buildings are in the Middle East or in China.

For example, the total unit pressure under the rectangular area D, E, F, G shown in Fig. may be assumed equal to th of the total loads on the columns at D,.
Росио попробовала закричать, но в легких не было воздуха. Он вот-вот задавит. Уже теряя сознание, она рванулась к свету, который пробивался из приоткрытой двери гостиничного номера, и успела увидеть руку, сжимающую пистолет с глушителем.
Отсюда я не в состоянии ему помочь - ему придется полагаться лишь на. А потом, я не хочу говорить по линии, не защищенной от прослушивания.
- Эдди! - крикнул. - Хватит валять дурака. Какой-то тип разыскивал Меган. Человек не выпускал его из рук. - Да хватит тебе, Эдди! - Но, посмотрев в зеркало, он убедился, что это вовсе не его закадычный дружок.
