The design of Shallow and Deep Foundations introduces the concept of limit state calculations before focusing on shallow and deep foundations. The limit state combinations of actions are examined, and practical calculation models of the bearing capacity and of the settlement are presented, particularly from the results of Ménard pressuremeter tests and cone penetration tests. Attention is also given to the use of numerical methods, which have been developed over the past twenty years. It provides an overview of various ground-structure interaction elements pertinent for a refined design of both shallow and deep foundations, such as allowable displacements of structures and ground-structure couplings.
This guide will be useful to practicing engineers and experts in design offices, contracting companies, and administrations, as well as students and researchers in civil engineering. Though its focus is generally on the French practice, it is more widely applicable to design based on, or generally in line with, Eurocode 7, with references to BS ENs.
