West Bengal. it is our professional opinion the site may be developed for the proposed structure using conventional grading and foundation construction techniques. This classification indicates the depth of foundation installation. GLORY ENGINEERS SYNDICATE . Therefore. A deep foundation is thought only when the sub-soil at shallow depth cannot provide effective bearing to the structure and/or the total settlement of the layer within the pressure bulb is more than the allowable settlement. laboratory testing and engineering analysis. The three basic requirements are:(i) Foundation placement. The foundation placement should be such that any future influence should not affect its performance adversely. This occurs if the shear strength of the soil is inadequate to support the applied load. which involves suitable proportioning of footing to avoid a catastrophic collapse of the soil beneath the foundation. The safe design of foundation for a given loading system must satisfy certain design requirements. Therefore.. and due to the consolidation of the supporting soil. which involves the location and depth of foundation. Excessive settlement are caused due to the distortion of the soil mass as a result of the applied shear stresses. Job No. (iii) Tolerable foundation settlement. there must be adequate factor of safety of foundation against possible bearing capacity failure. the settlement of the foundation must be within permissible limit.Site: TLF Shed in Haldia Installation of the Indian Oil Corporation at Haldia. This requires a careful investigation of the past usage of the site and detailed information of the subsurface stratum. GUIDELINES FOR DESIGN OF FOUNDATION :Structural foundations may be grouped under two broad categories – (i) Shallow Foundation. – GES/S/32/2013 Page No. which involves keeping a check on the exclusive settlement of a structure. Recommendations regarding the geotechnical aspects of project design and construction are presented in the herein.
