Design of Pile Cap Using Staad Foundation Advanced

Pile caps are rigid plate structures that are used to transfer superstructure load from columns to a group of piles. They...

Design of Pile Foundation System for Bridge Piers

Piles are the most preferred type of foundation for supporting the piers of overhead bridges. They offer greater resistance to vertical...

3D Soil-Structure Interaction Analysis of Cantilever Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are structures used to retain earth fill, and have found wide applications in buildings and highway construction. Traditionally, cantilever retaining...

On Consolidation Settlement of Pile Groups

When a group of piles are founded on saturated clays, the pile group undergoes time dependent consolidation settlement. This can be calculated using the...

Analysis of Beams on Elastic Foundation

Introduction When a beam lies on elastic foundation under the action of externally applied loads, the reaction forces of the foundation are proportional at every...

Analysis and Design of Cantilever Retaining Walls on Staad Pro

In this post, we are going to show how cantilever retaining walls can be analysed and designed on Staad Pro software, and also compare...

Manual Design of Beam and Raft Foundation to Eurocode 2 (free PDF download)

In our last post, we considered the analysis of beam and raft foundation of a G+1 building using Staad Pro software. In this particular...

Uplift Verification for Underground Structures

It is widely recognised that an object will float in water if the weight is less than the upthrust. Upthrust is...

How to Analyse Retaining Walls for Trapezoidal Load

In the analysis of retaining walls subjected to earth pressure, it is very common to observe trapezoidal load distribution on the walls. Normally, earth...

Structural Design of Swimming Pools and Underground Water Tanks

I spent a large part of the last few months developing the contents of this booklet on 'Structural Design of Underground Water Tanks and...

Provision of Longitudinal Reinforcement in Piles: Solved Example

Precast piles are designed to withstand stresses caused during their installation, and the load from their service life. Bored piles on the other hand...

Design of Pile Foundation Using Prokon Software

Few months ago, I made a publication on the design of pile foundation founded on sandy soils by using Lekki Pennisula Lagos, as case...
