This course covers aspects of the geotechnical and structural design of spread and piled foundations, tailored for engineers working in small practices. The content is compliant with Eurocodes 2 and 7, with opportunities for comparisons with relevant British Standards.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
- Develop suitable foundations using ground investigation material
- Prepare scheme designs for spread and piled foundations
- Analyse the practical problems involved in the construction of foundations
Bob Benton is a chartered structural engineer with experience of designing building and civil engineering structures and motorway projects. He is a visiting lecturer at the University of the West of England, where he teaches undergraduate, postgraduate and mid-career engineers. He has also authored educational material for The British Standards Institution.
Graduate engineers who wish to develop practical design skills, and mid-career engineers, particularly those working in small practices, who are designing foundations and making the transition to Eurocodes.
Participants should be familiar with limit state design methods.
