Design of Building Foundations

An Guide for Structural Engineers involved in Design of Foundations

This section is suitable for practicing Civil Engineers, Structural Engineers, Geotechnical Engineers, Graduates and Students in Engineering.

This section will provide a series of specialized articles for those involved in the Design of Foundation Structures for all types of Buildings and Civil Engineering Structures. Reinforced Concrete & Steel structures will be used. A practical and simple approach is emphasized throughout, so quick references can be made. For more theoretical approach, readers are to refer to Book Sections.

Engineering Tutorials, Calculation Examples, Design and Worked Examples, Drawings & Details are all available for download or purchase.

Engineering Training & Courses are conducted regularly.

Should you have any queries, check out the Forum, or Engineers Q&A Section, or Contact Us. Technical Support is only provided to Registered Members.
