Foundation Design and Construction

Foundation Design and Construction MJ Tomlinson Foundation Design and Construction has long been established as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the subject. The combination of soil engineering principles, design information, and construction details, makes this book an essential resource for undergraduates and practitioners alike. The text first introduces basic theory and then, by means of case studies, practical worked examples and design charts, develops an in-depth understanding of foundation design and construction methods. Types of foundation covered include shallow strip, pad and raft, basement structures, driven and bored piles, and deep shafts. Practical information is also given on foundation design for swelling and shrinking clays, filled ground and mining subsidence areas.

New piling techniques and powerful piling rigs have effectively addressed the problems of producing piles to cope with the larger structural loads, and significant improvements have taken place in understanding the behaviour of piles. However, despite the advances in analytical and numerical methods using sophisticated computer software which allow theoretical soil mechanics solutions to be applied to aspects of pile design, much reliance still has to be placed on empirical correlations. The late Michael Tomlinson was an empiricist committed to the scientific method with extensive practical knowledge, and these principles and applications are still the backbone of practical pile design. I have therefore endeavoured to keep to the spirit of MJT's work, retaining a substantial amount of his writings on the technicalities of pile design, particularly the demonstration of the basic principles using his hand calculation methods. However, there are new codified design procedures which have to be addressed. For example, the formal adoption in Europe of the Eurocodes for structural design and 'load and resistance factor design' more generally elsewhere has led to new ways of assessing design parameters and safety factors.

Practical information is also given on foundation design for swelling and shrinking clays, filled ground and mining subsidence areas. In addition the text contains a useful introduction to computer-aided design. The seventh edition has been brought up-to-date with recent developments in foundation design and construction techniques.

Protection of foundation structures against attack by soils and ground water A site investigation in one form or another is always required for any engineering or building structure. The investigation may range in scope from a simple examination of the surface soils with or without a few shallow trial pits, to a detailed study of the soil and ground water conditions to a considerable depth below the surface by means of boreholes and in-situ and laboratory tests on the materials encountered. The extent of the work depends on the importance and foundation arrangement of the structure, the complexity of the soil conditions, and the information which may be available on the behavior of existing foundations on similar soils.
