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)

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 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

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...

Guidelines for Tying of Reinforcement

In the construction of reinforced concrete structures, reinforcement bars must be tied together in order to hold them in place and to also facilitate...

Cost of Reinforcement Works in Nigeria

Installation of reinforcements is an important item of work in the construction of reinforced concrete structures. The cost of reinforcement works therefore significantly impacts...

Design of Shear Walls

Shear walls are structural members that provide additional lateral stiffness to a building by resisting shear, moment, and axial forces, which are produced due...

Technical Guide: Detailing and Arrangement of Beam Reinforcements on Site

Beams are horizontal structural elements used for supporting lateral loads. In conventional reinforced concrete structures, beams usually receive load from the floor slab, but...
