The subject of prestressing covers a process that is relatively new and the inventor and chief protagonist of which died only 20 years ago-Eugene Freyssinet. Indeed, the major innovations in prestressed concrete, and the notable structures that have resulted, have come about in the last 40 years or so; the ‘childhood’ will therefore deal only with a short time-span, up to about 20 years ago. F. Walley

Structural-Soil Interaction - a Different Approach

Structural-Soil Interaction - a Different Approach

Extract from CP2004 Code of practice for foundations: 7.5 Bearing capacity and test loading 7.5.1 Bearing capacity of a pile. The bearing capacity of a pile is dependent on the size, shape and type of pile and on the properties of the soil in which it is embedded. The ultimate bearing capacity is the load at which the resistance of the soil becomes fully mobilized . . . Dennis Waite
