COURSE OUTLINE
• Stress Distribution of Soil
• Compressibility of Soil
• Shear Strength of Soil
• Lateral Earth Pressure: Retaining Walls, Sheet Pile Walls, and Braced
Cuts
• Bearing Capacity of Soil
• Slope Stability

WHAT IS FOUNDATION ENGINEERING?
• It a category of engineering concerned with evaluating the ability of a
specific location to support a given structural load, and with designing
the substructure or transition member needed to support the
construction.
WHAT IS A FOUNDATION?
• The foundation of a structure is that part of the structure in direct
contact with the ground and which transmits the load of the structure
to the ground.
What are the geotechnical/foundation
structures?
• Footings
 Gravity Walls

Stone walls

Gabion wall

## Reinforced concrete walls

• RETAINING STRUCTURES
Types of Foundation
• Shallow Foundations
• Spread Footings, Wall footings, and Mat Foundations
• The depth of embedment can be equal to or less than
three to four times the width of the foundation.
• Deep Foundations
• Pile and Drilled Shaft foundations
• Used when top layers of soil have poor bearing capacity
Design of Foundation of Structures requires
knowledge of :
Load that will be transmitted by the superstructure to the
foundation system;

## The behavior and stress-related deformability of soils that will

support the foundation system;

## The geological conditions of the soil under consideration.

Stress Distribution in Soil Mass
Lecture #1
Introduction/Rationale:
• Construction of a foundation causes changes in the
stress, usually a stress increase. It is necessary to
estimate the net increase of vertical stress in soil that
occurs as a result of the construction of a foundation so
that settlement can be calculated.
Stresses caused by a Point Load
• Boussinesq’s solution for normal stresses at a point caused by
Stresses caused by a Point Load
• The relationship of Δσz can be rewritten as:
Vertical Stress Caused by a Vertical Line Load
Vertical Stress Caused by a Horizontal Line
Vertical Stress Caused by a Vertical
Strip Load (Finite Width and Infinite
Length)
Vertical Stress Caused by a Vertical Strip Load
(Finite Width and Infinite Length)
Infinite Strip
Vertical Stress Due to Embankment
Vertical Stress at Any Point Below a Uniformly
Vertical Stress Caused by a Rectangularly
Vertical Stress Caused by a Rectangularly

Example no. 1
• An inclined line load with a magnitude of 10 kN/m is shown.
