2 Foundations and framed construction Chris Gorse and Ian Dickinson These slides should be read in conjunction with Emmitt, S. and Gorse, C. (2010) Barrys Advanced Construction of Buildings. Oxford, Blackwell Publishing

3 Foundation under a portal frame b. Pad foundations – used under the point loads of the framed construction Ground beams – carry the wall loads to the pad foundations Pad foundations

4 Pile and Raft c. Pile foundations – transfers the load to lower more stable ground. c. Raft foundations – spreads the load over greater surface area Continuous reinforced concrete raft foundation Ground beams carry the wall loads to the pile caps Clusters of pile foundations Pile caps Raft foundation – thickening where point loads occur Edge beams may be used to increase stiffness and rigidity

5 Discussion Discuss the various situations where beam and pad, pile and beam and raft foundations would be used under a frame building. Consider the following in your discussion: – Ground condition – Size of building – Building loads
