The shortage of good building land means that developers and builders are increasingly using sites with difficult ground conditions resulting from previous usage, mining, geological or soil features. Foundations on these sites have to be designed by a Chartered Engineer and the designs have to be submitted for Building Regulations and NHBC approval.
This book provides practical solutions for the design of foundations for housing and other low-rise buildings, especially those on abnormal or poor ground. A wealth of expert information and advice is brought together dealing with the key aspects a designer must consider in order to achieve effective and economic foundation designs. This second edition of Structural Foundations Manual for Low-Rise Buildings has been completely updated in line with the new government guidelines on contaminated land and brown-field sites.
The book covers: site investigation; foundation design; foundations in cohesive soils; foundations in sands and gravels; building in mining localities; sites with trees; developing on sloping sites; building on filled ground; ground improvement; building up to existing buildings; contaminated land.
The book includes well-detailed design solutions and calculations, actual case histories, illustrations, design charts and check lists, making it a user-friendly reference for contractors, structural engineers, architects and students who have to deal with foundations for low-rise buildings on sites with difficult ground conditions.
