Raft Analysis and Design - Some Practical Examples

This paper describes the way in which the principles of soil-structure interaction have been applied in the analysis and design of rafts and other surface foundations. Various techniques of modelling the soil and structure are outlined, as is the method of coupling the foundation structure to a layered soil continuum. The general approach to design is also discussed, and summaries are given of eight structural design projects ranging from simple strip footings to complex raft foundations. J.A. Hooper
