Respected faculties/structural engineers,

I am an M Tech student studying in Tamil Nadu. My field is geotechnical engineering. As part of my thesis I need to create a foundation selection chart in which each type of foundation is differentiated in terms of type of soil, sbc, type of structure (no of floors) etc.                                

The foundation types I am considering are isolated footing, spread footing, pile, raft, combined footing and caisson foundation.


Since I have no practical knowledge, I request the the sef engineers to please share with me your knowledge about tips. Atleast give me some tips about each foundation selection.


Awaiting a positive response


Regards
Pooja anand

Dear sefians,


Based on the guidance i got from here and also by referring some books, i have created a table for foundation selection. Please note that this is to create a software for my project. I request anyone to please go through the attached file and say if there is any fundamental mistakes.  Also please share your knowledge and tips to make it better.


Thank You.
Pooja
