Foundation Engineering

CLASS EXAMPLE

A mass concrete pier of circular cross-section is to carry a design load, including its own weight,

of 2.5MN. The base of the pier is to be located 4.5m below the surface of a deep layer of

saturated clay. The unit weight of the clay is 18.5kN/m 3 and its characteristic undrained shear

strength, cu,k = 50kN/m2. For preliminary design purposes a depth factor of 1.4 can is assumed.

Using partial factor set M1+R1 from Tables below, determine the diameter of the pier to give an

over design factor, , of 2, against foundation failure. Neglect any soil resistance mobilised on

the cylindrical surface of the pier below ground level.

For a strip footing, the bearing resistance/unit area, (R/A) = (2+)cu,d + qo (where symbols have

their usual contextual meaning).

Note: The over design factor, = (Design resistance of soil)/(Design loading)
