Bina Nusantara What is Foundation Engineering? The art of selecting, designing, and constructing structural support systems based on scientific principles of soils and engineering mechanics incorporating accumulated experience with such applications. A scientifically Acceptable Answer DEFINITION
Bina Nusantara DEFINITION What is Foundation Engineering? Foundation Engineering is the art and science of molding materials we do not fully understand into shapes we can not precisely analyze to resist forces we can not accurately predict, all in such a way that the society at large is given no reason to suspect of our ignorance. Not so scientifically Acceptable Answer – addopted from Coduto
Bina Nusantara FOUNDATION TYPES Shallow Foundations. Shallow foundations are usually placed within a depth D beneath the ground surface less than the minimum width B of the foundation. Shallow foundations consist of spread and continuous footings, wall footings and mats.
Bina Nusantara FOUNDATION TYPES Deep Foundations. Deep foundations can be as short as 15 to 20 ft or as long as 200 ft or more and may consist of driven piles, drilled shafts or stone columns. A single drilled shaft often has greater load bearing capacity than a single pile. Deep foundations may be designed to carry superstructure loads through poor soil (loose sands, soft clays, and collapsible materials) into competent bearing materials. Even when piles or drilled shafts are carried into competent materials, significant settlement can still occur if compressible soils are located below the tip of these deep foundations.
Bina Nusantara DESIGN CRITERIA THE DESIGN SHOULD BE: - SAFE - RELIABLE - DURABLE - BUILDABLE - ECONOMIC
Bina Nusantara DESIGN DATA SOIL DATA GROUND WATER DATA GEOMETRY DATA DATA OF LOAD
Bina Nusantara SOIL DATA DETERMINED FROM: - FIELD INVESTIGATION - CPT - SPT - VANE SHEAR TEST - PRESSUREMETER TEST - LABORATORY TEST - INDEX TEST - TRIAKSIAL - DIRECT SHEAR - UNCONFINED - CONSOLIDATION
Bina Nusantara ADVANTAGES – Could be used to identify soil types visually – Could be used to get qualitative soil properties by empirical correlation LIMITATION – The soil strength profile can not be measured continuously – The high accuracy is needed during investigation in case of weight and fall height of hammer STANDARD PENETRATION TEST (SPT)
Bina Nusantara TYPES OF TOOL AND PRINCIPLE OF WORK – Mechanical friction-cone penetrometer by pushing a cone with projection area 10 cm 2 and 60 o angle and standard velocity 20 mm per-second. 2 measurement parameters each 20 cm of depth: Cone Resistance (q c ) Local Friction (f s ) – Electric friction-cone penetrometer measure the cone pressure and continuously friction with better accuracy level CONE PENETRATION TEST (CPT)
Bina Nusantara CONE PENETRATION TEST (CPT) ADVANTAGES – Continuous Soil strength profile – Give fast description of soil – Simple LIMITATION – The accuracy is bad for soil with some stones – Mechanical friction-cone penetrometer is less sensitive when applied in very soft clay
Bina Nusantara LABORATORY TESTS Soil Index ( , , e, GS dll.) – Measuring of volume and mass of sample – Sieve analysis test – Atterberg Test Shear Strength of Soil (c, ) – Triaksial Test (UU, CU, CD) – Direct Shear – Unconfined Compression Test Compressibility (Cc, Cv) – Consolidation Test Permeability (k) – Constant Head – Falling Head
