Basic Design of Concrete Foundation & Soil Investigation
Course Description
Concrete is widely used for making architectural structures, foundations, brick, block walls, pavements, bridges, overpasses, highways, runways, parking structures, dams, pools, reservoirs, pipes, footings for gates, fences and poles and even boats. Concrete is used in large quantities almost everywhere mankind has a need for infrastructure. Foundation is the base of any structure. Without a firm foundation, the structure cannot stand.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The reason why we have to be very cautious with the design of foundations because our entire structure rests on the foundation. The strength of the foundation determines the life of the structure. The design of foundation depends on the type of soil, type of structure and its load.

Training Objective

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

    • Have a working knowledge needed for design of shallow and deep foundation systems, and their interacting soil behaviors
    • Know how to estimate and control settlements and handle or modify difficult soil conditions
    • Understand basic concepts for planning, design, and construction of a wide range of foundation systems

Target Audience

Civil and Structural Engineers and Designers, Soils and Foundation Engineers, Public Works Professionals, Project Engineers and Managers, Contractors, Engineers-in-Training, Architectural Engineers and Architects.
