Summary

Summary

Correctly understanding, designing and analyzing the foundations that support structures is fundamental to their safety. This book by a range of academic, design and contracting world experts provides a review of the state-of-the-art techniques for modelling foundations using both linear and non linear numerical analysis. It applies to a range of infrastructure, civil engineering and structural engineering projects and allows designers, engineers, architects, researchers and clients to understand some of the advanced numerical techniques used in the analysis and design of foundations.

Topics include:

Ground vibrations caused by trains Pile-group effects Bearing capacity of shallow foundations under static and seismic conditions Bucket foundation technology for offshore oilfields Seismically induced liquefaction in earth embankment foundations and in pile foundations Free vibrations of industrial chimneys and TV towers with flexibility of the soil Settlements of high rise structures Seepage, stress fields and dynamic responses in dams Site investigation


Author Notes

John W. Bull is Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
