Bearing capacity and settlement

  • Ended
  • 579 Canadian dollars
  • Zoom

At the end of this course, the participant will be

• Estimate the bearing capacities at limit states for different soils • Determine representative soil profile • Know the approaches to consider for calculating the settlement of a shallow foundation Description : Training intended for people who want to learn and/or improve their level of expertise in everything related to the design of shallow foundations, essentially the calculations of the bearing capacity at the ultimate limit states and in service (ULS and SLS). Target Clientele: This training is intended for architects, civil engineers, contractors, developers, owners and also anyone with a background in civil engineering (technical or university), with equivalent training or professional experience or working in the field of civil engineering. Program : • Procedure to follow following receipt of the results of the tests (in situ and in the laboratory) carried out or already available • Determination of the representative soil profile • Approaches and correlations currently considered in practice • Bearing capacities at the ULS and the SLS • Real projects already carried out (one for a deposit of clay soil and another for a granular soil)
