3.0 SITE DESCRIPTION

The site of the proposed building of Civil Defense Directorate & Adminstration Of
The Holy Capital And Hajj Command, located in Aziziah, Makkah, Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia, is generally flat and clean, with area of 5000 square meters
approx., bordered by Aziziah street from north, cultural street (12.00m width)
from south, Commercial market from east, street (12.00m width) from west,
{Figures (A-1), Appendix I presents the site and boreholes locations plan}, The
exposed formations at this site are composed of backfill layer.

4.0 PROPOSED STRUCTURES

The proposed project is the construction of the assumed main building (consist of
(basement + water tank) floor + ground floor + 15 repeated floors + One Heli
deck) & parking building (consist of 3 basement floors + ground floor + 3
repeated floors), and will be constructed from reinforcement concrete in situ
casting, or pre-casting and pre-stressing.

5.0 FIELD INVESTIGATIONS

After the visual inspection of the site, the subsurface soil investigation was
performed on October 24, 2016 to November 21, 2016, ten (10) boreholes from
(BH-01) to (BH-10) and two (2) test pits, were drilled at the locations shown on
the enclosed site plan {Figure (A-1), Appendix I}. The following table (1)

All borings were drilled by the use of a truck mounted Mobile B-53 drill-
ing rig utilizing tricone bit and casing. Borehole numbers, locations and
depths were made according to the project requirements to cover the site
and satisfy the geotechnical needs of the project as can be seen in Figure
(A-1) Appendix I. Both sampling and field testing were conducted in ac-
cordance with the applicable ASTM specifications.

Split-spoon sampler samples and tricone cuttings were recovered from


various depths below the ground surface. Standard Penetration Test
(S.P.T.) was conducted from the surface formation with the use of 140-lb
hammer to recover samples in the split-spoon sampler.

Coring in rock was performed by using double tube core barrel fitted with
diamond bits. The extracted cores, for every run not exceeding 1.5M,
were arranged in the core boxes and the recovery (REC) as well as (RQD)
Rock Quality Designation values were calculated.

The logs of the boreholes are shown on (Figures (C-1) to (C-12), Appen-
dix I), of which a continuous geological profile of all boreholes was pre-
pared by an experienced engineering geologist to present clearly all the
subsurface formations encountered {Figures (D-1), (D-3), Appendix I}.

6.0 LABORATORY TESTINGS

Each split spoon sampler sample recovered was inspected, carefully


placed in a plastic bag, sealed, labeled and protected in another plastic
bag. Grain size distribution, water content, Atterberg limits and chemical
tests were conducted on representative soil samples. Likewise, rock core
samples that were recovered were inspected, measured for their respec-
tive recovery and R.Q.D.'s (Rock Quality Designation) and classified ac-
cordingly. All laboratory tests were carried out in accordance with the
applicable ASTM Standards and were made to be the basis of the analy-
sis. The results of all laboratory tests are presented in Appendix II.

The relative ASTM standards used are as follows:

1. ASTM D2216 – Laboratory Determination of Water


(moisture) Content of Soil.

2. ASTM D2487 - Classification of Soils for Engineering


Purpose (Unified Soil Classification System).

3. ASTM D 4318 - Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit and Plasticity


Index of Soils.

4. ASTM D422 - Particle Size Analysis of Soils

5. ASTM D1411, C1580 - Chemical Analysis test for Soils/water.

6. ASTM D5731 - Point load index.

7. ASTM D3148, D2938, D7012 - Unconfined compression test for


rock samples.

7.0 SUBSURFACE FORMATIONS

The subsurface data that was provided by the ten (10) boreholes that were
drilled to depths varying between 25.00 m to 30.00 m below the existing
ground levels and two (2) test pits revealed that the subsurface formations at
this site consists of mainly four layers are extending from the existing ground
levels to the maximum investigation depths, the subsurface geotechnical
profile is composed of the following:
A. Fill materials: As a top layer in all boreholes sand with various
amounts of silt, gravel and remnants of old foundations, with thickness
varying between 1.50m to 3.00m.
B. SAND with various amount of silt and gravel: Below backfill layer

in boreholes No. 1, 2, 4, and 5, and did not appear in the rest of the
borings, loose to medium dense, light brown, dry, poorly graded
SAND with various amount of silt and gravel, the thickness of this lay-
er is 1.50m.

C. Completely weathered Granodiorite: Below the above layers in all

boreholes except No. 6, 7, and 9, very dense, gray, completely weath-


ered rock formation was encountered, The thickness of this layer is
varying between 1.50m to 4.50m.

D. Very highly to slightly fractured Granodiorite: Below the above

layers in all boreholes, gray, very highly to slightly fractured Granodi-


orite rock, very poor to excellent rock quality (RQD varying between
0.0% to 98%) this layer extended to the end of borings.

 Important note;
According to the logs of executed borings in the site (especially borings
No. 6 & 7 & 8), observed the existence of a weak rocky layer {highly frac-
tured and very poor quality (RQD = 0%) } and with different thicknesses,

Page
. 9
at a depth of 8.50 meters to 21.00 meters, so we recommend to perform an
additional borings in the site in the area between the borings numbers 5 & 6
& 7 & 8 to determine the prevalence of this layer, and to determine how to
treat them.

8.0 GROUNDWATER TABLES

While following-up on the next day after the completion of the field work, it
was noted a large disparity between water elevations in the different borings,
so the water has been expelled from the borings using air compressor, and has
been monitored more than once in the presence of the consultant, we did not
observe any changes happen in water elevations, where the groundwater table
level was encountered varying between the levels of (289.433) to (293.166)
during the time of investigations.
The following table (2) showing the ground water (levels & depths) in
all boreholes;

However, ground water table is subject to variations depending upon the


amount of precipitation, evaporation and run-off.

9.0 DISCUSSION

The soil profile of the site of the proposed building of Civil Defense Di-
rectorate & Adminstration Of The Holy Capital And Hajj Command, lo-
cated in Aziziah, Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is consists mainly
of a backfill materials start from the ground top surface, followed by
a loose to medium dense, poorly to well graded sand with various
amounts of silt and gravel, thin layer of very dense completely weath-
ered Granodiorite rock formations followed by the same type of rock but
very highly to slightly fractured Granodiorite layer extended to the end
of borings.
The foundation for such structures resting on such presented subsurface
formations should usually consist of Shallow or Deep Foundations, The
choice of the type of foundation will depend primarily on the type,
weight of the structure and applied loads, the thickness of the subsurface
formations, the denseness and strength of the underlying influenced stra-
ta the allowable settlement and on the position of the groundwater table,
where encountered. It is clear from the logs (Figures (C-1) to (C-12),
Appendix I), that the proposed structures may safely be supported by
(Raft Foundation).

10.0 GEOTECHNICAL RECOMMENDATIONS

10- 1 General Description:

The site covered by the geotechnical investigations is considered suitable for the
proposed building of Civil Defense Directorate & Adminstration Of The Holy
Capital And Hajj Command, located in Aziziah, Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Ara-
bia, provided that the conditions set forth in this report are met.

10- 2 Type of Foundations:


Based on the in-situ conditions of the soil/rock encountered, and the architecture
requirements of the proposed buildings, it is recommended to use (Raft Foundation)
to support the proposed building safely, this type of foundation is the most econom-
ical and suitable type of foundations to support the proposed building.

10- 3 Depth of Foundations and Allowable Bearing Capacity:


Depending on the specifications and characteristics of the subsurface layers and
architectural requirements, the foundation levels and the net allowable bearing
capacity is given in table (2).
Table (2): Foundation level and Net Allowable Bearing capacity

Parking building 290.15 5.00
poor rock formation

This bearing value is the net allowable pressures, which should be used in
the design for total dead and live loads.

Page
. 12
 Important note:
Due to the existence of a weak rocky layer at a depth of 8.50 meters to
21.00 meters (as mentioned in Chapter 7), so we recommend to perform an
(3 to 5) additional borings in the site in the area between the borings num-
bers 5 & 6 & 7 & 8 to determine the prevalence of this layer, and to deter-
mine how to treat them by using the Appropriate engineering method.

10- 4 Settlements:
By applying the above mentioned allowable soil pressure, the estimated to-

tal settlement should be less than 5.00 cm, while the estimated differential

settlement should be less than 2.00 cm.

10- 5 Coefficient of subgrade reaction:


At the assumed foundations levels, the value of coefficient of of subgrade

reaction can be considered as follow;

- For the main building (Ks) = 96000.0 KN/m3.

- For the parking building (Ks) = 66000.0 KN/m3.

10- 6 Site Grading and Foundation Preparation:


- It is recommended that all site preparation and grading be done in close con-

tact with a Geotechnical Engineer. After removal of any debris and loose

soils from the structure’s location, site preparation should include excava-

tion of the site down to the recommended foundation design levels. All

stripped and excavated materials can be transported away from the site or

can be stockpiled for later use in backfilling if it is geotechnically approved.

Ordinary excavation equipment can be used for the top soil materials while

jack hammering will be used for rock excavation. Temporary foundation

Page
. 13
excavations should be made with a slope of 1V: 1.5H for soil and 4V: 1H

for rock.

- After the foundation locations have been cleared, stripped and excavated to

design grade, the rock layer (at foundation level) should be settled by a

backfill concrete have a cement content not less than 200 kg/m3, and a Ge-

otechnical Engineer should check the prepared foundation surfaces.

- If cannot (open-excavation) must work necessary support the aspects of exca-

vation of the suitable engineering method by a specializes company to pro-

tect the surrounding infrastructure facilities and services and employment

during implementation.

- Fill materials around and above the foundation should be compacted to a

minimum relative compaction of 95% of the maximum dry density deter-

mined by Standard ASTM D698 test designation.

10- 7 Dewatering:
Dewatering will be required during excavation and construction of the

foundation. Because the groundwater table level was encountered at level

of (293.166) during the time of investigations.

10- 8 Drainage and Water Control:

During construction, a drainage system with possibly pumping facilities

should be provided on site to avoid flooding during rainfall season and

surface run-off waters.

Page
. 14
11.0 SUBSURFACE CONCRETE

As for subsurface concrete based on chemical analysis, the following rec-


ommendations are given:

11.1 Type of Cement:

According to the chemical analysis, the ordinary Port-land cement (Type 1)

with 8% microsillica or sulfate resisting cement (Type V SRC) can be used

in the foundation and subsurface structures, to provide extra protection

against any probable seepage of sulfate dissolved in sewer water or from

any external source. In addition a suitable coating (according to project

specifications) should be applied to all underground structural’s surfaces.

11.2 Compressive Strength For Foundations Concrete:

For all below grade structures the compressive strength of concrete (cubed

samples) after 28 shall be 40MPa or in accordance with the instructions of

the consultative designer and supervisor of the construction engineer.

11.3 Minimum depth of cover:

The minimum depth of cover for reinforced concrete should be not less than

75 mm.

In addition, two layers of membrane water proofing (4mm and 3mm) should

be applied on all subsurface concrete structures.

 Seismic Design Category Based on short period Response acceleration = A
 Seismic Design Category Based on 1Sec. Response acceleration = C

13.0 SHEAR STRENGTH & EARTHPRESSURE


PARAMETERS
The walls, which will retain the backfill, will be subjected to earth pressure,
hence they should be designed to resist it.
The recommended values of shear strength parameters, earth pressure parame-
ters and coefficient of friction (f) between footing base and soil are given
below:

13- 1 Shear strength parameters in the soil formations:


- Angle of internal friction of soil (Ø) = 30˚
- Cohesion = 00.00 Kn/m2
- Bulk unit weight = 17.00 Kn/m3
13- 2 Lateral earth pressure coefficients in the soil formations:
- Coefficient of active earth pressure (ka) = 0.33
- Coefficient of at rest earth pressure (k0) = 0.50
- Coefficient of passive earth pressure (kp) = 3.00

13- 3 coefficient of friction = 0.42

Page
. 16
14.0 LIMITATIONS

The recommendations which are given in this report are based on the as-
sumption that the soil conditions do not deviate significantly from those
disclosed in the borings and laboratory test results. If there will be any
unanticipated variations in the subsurface conditions or if the proposed
construction will differ from those planned at this time, as it is described
in this report, the soil engineer should be notified so that supplementary
recommendations can be given.
Please note that all the samples acquired from this investigation will be
discarded after 15 days of the approval of report by the ministry of
transport, while the report will itself along with it's original file and all
data be discarded after 10 years if the client does not ask formally for their
retention.

Our Company after having been chosen to perform this geotechnical


investigation shall in case of counter claim be liable only to the extent of
what has been paid for the works done.
Foundation dynamic study was not included in the scope of our
contract.

NOTE # 1: If the concentration of NaCl gives a higher class rating that the concentration of SO3, then
the higher class shall be used and vice versa

NOTE # 2: The cement contents given in the table relate to 20 mm. nominal maximum size aggregate.
In order to maintain the content of the mortar fraction at similar values, the minimum cement
content gives above should be increased by 50 kg/M3 for 10 mm nominal maximum size
aggregate and may be decreased by 30 Kg/M3 for 40 mm nominal size aggregate.

NOTE # 3: Different aggregate require different water contents produce concrete of the same workabi-
lity and therefore a range of free water/cement ratio is applicable to each cement content.
In order to achieve satisfactory workability at specified maximum free water/cement ratio, it
may benecessary to increase the cement content above the minimum specified or use
water-reducing admixtures.

NOTE # 4: Pulverized fly ash (pfa) should comply with BS 3892 or the appropriate part of ASTM C 595.
Ground granulated blastfurnace slag should comply with BS 0002, or the appropriate part of
ASTM C 595

NOTE # 5: Minimum depth of cover apply to concrete with 20 mm maximum size aggregate in no case
should the cover be less than the maximum size of aggregate size. Minimum cover
includes cover to links, ets.

NOTE # 6: Concrete exposed to moisture in class 3, 4, or 5 environment should be subject to an additional


requirement of a maximum water penetration of 30 mm at 28 days age when tested by the
DIN 1048 test method for impermeability.

NOTE # 7: Concrete exposed to wetting & drying by irrigation water should be rated Class 2 as a
minimum requirement.

SITE CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURE FOR SEISMIC DESIGN

CHAPTER 14
SITE CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURE
FOR SEISMIC DESIGN

SECTION 14.1
GENERAL

14.1.1 Site Class Definitions. The site shall be classified as one of the following
classes:
A = Hard rock with measured shear wave velocity, � s > 1500 m/s

B= Rock with 760 m/s < � s � 1500 m/s

C= Very dense soil and soft rock with 370 m/s � � s � 760 m/s or N or
N ch > 50 or s u � 100 kPa

D= Stiff soil with 180 m/s � � s � 370 m/s or with 15 � N or N ch � 50


or 50 kPa � s u � 100 kPa

E= A soil profile with � s < 180 m/s or any profile with more than 3 m of
soft clay. Soft clay is defined as soil with PI > 20,w � 40%, and s u
< 25 kPa
F= Soils requiring site-specific evaluations:
1. Soils vulnerable to potential failure or collapse under seismic
loading such as liquefiable soils, quick and highly sensitive clays,
collapsible weakly cemented soils.
Exception: For structures having fundamental periods of vibration
equal to or less than 0.5-sec, site-specific evaluations are not
required to determine spectral accelerations for liquefiable soils.
Rather, the Site Class may be determined in accordance with
Section 14.1.2 and the corresponding values of Fa and Fv
determined from Tables 9.4.3a and 9.4.3b.
2. Peats and/or highly organic clays (H > 3 m of peat and/or highly
organic clay where H = thickness of soil).
3. Very high plasticity clays (H > 8 m with PI > 75).
4. Very thick soft/medium stiff clays (H > 37 m).
Exception: When the soil properties are not known in sufficient detail to
determine the Site Class, Class D shall be used. Site Class E shall be used
when the authority having jurisdiction determines that Site Class E is present
at the site or in the event that Site E is established by geotechnical data.

14.1.1.1 Referenced Standards. The following standards are referenced in the


provisions for determining the seismic coefficients:

characteristics:
- Plasticity index PI > 20,
- Moisture content w � 40%, and
- Undrained shear strength su < 25 kPa
F Soils requiring site-specific evaluation 1. Soils vulnerable to potential failure or collapse
2. Peats and/or highly organic clays
3. Very high plasticity clays
4. Very thick soft/medium clays
Note: When the soil properties are not known in sufficient detail to determine the Site Class, Class D
or E shall be used.

14.1.2 Steps for Classifying a Site. The Site Class of a site shall be determined using
the following steps:

Step 1: Check for the four categories of Site Class F requiring site-specific
evaluation. If the site corresponds to any of these categories, classify
the site as Site Class F and conduct a site-specific evaluation.
Step 2: Check for the existence of a total thickness of soft clay > 3 m where a
soft clay layer is defined by s u < 25 kPa, w � 40%, and PI > 20. If
this criterion is satisfied, classify the site as Site Class E.
Step 3: Categorize the site using one of the following three methods with � s ,
N , and s u computed in all cases as specified by the definitions in
Section 14.1.3.

SITE CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURE FOR SEISMIC DESIGN

a. The � s method:

Determine � s for the top 30 m of soil. Compare the value of � s with those
given in Section 14.1.1 and Table 14.1.1 and assign the corresponding Site
Class.
� s for rock, Site Class B, shall be measured on-site or estimated by a
geotechnical engineer or engineering geologist/seismologist for
competent rock with moderate fracturing and weathering.
� s for softer and more highly fractured and weathered rock shall be
measured on-site or shall be classified as Site Class C.

The classification of hard rock, Site Class A, shall be supported by on-site


measurements of � s or on profiles of the same rock type in the same
formation with an equal or greater degree of weathering and fracturing.
Where hard rock conditions are known to be continuous to a depth of at
least 30 m, surficial measurements of � s are not prohibited from being
extrapolated to assess � s .

The rock categories, Site Classes A and B, shall not be assigned to a site if
there is more than 3 m of soil between the rock surface and the bottom of
the spread footing or mat foundation.

b. The N method:

Determine N for the top 30 m of soil. Compare the value of N with those
given in Section 14.1.1 and Table 14.1.1 and assign the corresponding Site
Class.

c. The s u method:

For cohesive soil layers, determine s u for the top 30 m of soil. For
cohesionless soil layers, determine N ch for the top 30 m of soil.
Cohesionless soil is defined by a PI < 20 where cohesive soil is defined by a
PI > 20. Compare the values of s u and N ch with those given in Section
14.1.1 and Table 14.1.1 and assign the corresponding Site Class. When the
N ch and s u criteria differ, assign the category with the softer soil. (Site
Class E soil is softer than D).

14.1.3 Definitions of Site Class Parameters. The definitions presented below apply to
the upper 30 m of the site profile. Profiles containing distinctly different soil
layers shall be subdivided into those layers designated by a number that ranges
from 1 to n at the bottom where there are a total of n distinct layers in the upper
30 m. Where some of the n layers are cohesive and others are not, k is the
number of cohesive layers and m is the number of cohesionless layers. The
symbol i refers to any one of the layers between 1 and n.
v si is the shear wave velocity in m/s.
