Difference Between Pile Load Test and Pile Integrity Test

Pile foundations are slender structures used to transmit superstructure load to firmer sub-soil stratum beneath the natural ground surface. They can also be used...

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 are usually subjected...

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 and horizontal actions...

3D Soil-Structure Interaction of Cantilever Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are structures constructed for the purpose of retaining earth fill. There are different types of retaining walls such as cantilever retaining walls,...

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)

Uplift Verification of Underground Structures

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

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
