Pile & Raft (Mat) Foundations / FINITE ELEMENT METHOD


Economical & Robust Design of Building and Industrial Structures

Understand Earthquakes & Earthquake Analysis


25th - 26th - 27th June 2015

STRUCTURAL SAFETY IS THE PASSPORT TO THE FUTURE OF CONSTRUCTIONS,


FOR TOMORROW BELONGS TO THOSE WHO PREPARE FOR IT TODAY . . . . . . . . . . .

Introduction:

For Buildings & Industrial Structures founded on weak soils, Elevated Water Tanks, Tall Structures like Chimney or Towers, use of
either Raft Foundation or Pile foundation is a must. This workshop is planned to give a deeper in-sight into the requirement of Pile &
Raft Foundations so as to make a suitable choice. Many times costly Pile Foundations are chosen just due to lack of knowledge of
analysis / Design of Rafts Foundations. FINITE ELEMENT METHOD (FEM) is a versatile, advanced numerical procedure very
widely used in Aero-space industry, Vehicle Design, Bridges, Concrete / steel silos, Nuclear structures & complex problems in
foundation design. Since, FINITE ELEMENT METHOD (FEM) is generally not taught at Graduate level and covered in only PG
Courses, therefore, it is planned to give working knowledge of FINITE ELEMENT METHOD with the help of which most complex
foundation problems can easily be analysed.
This workshop is also planned to give a deeper in-sight into the phenomenon of earthquakes with reference to analysis and design of
Buildings & Industrial Structures. The Course also provides guidance on how to design economical but still robust structures for the
earthquakes expected at a given site.
The relevant Indian Standards (Codes) will be explained to reveal meanings of most important codal clauses & provisions. Special
emphasis will be on use of Ductility to provide economical but safe structures. Actual Examples will be used to elaborate on various
aspects for better understanding of behavior of the structures under the influence of seismic forces.
This course will serve as a technical reference to investors, developers, consultants, builders and middle level managers / engineers in
various sectors. Prior knowledge of soil mechanics & dynamics may be useful but not a must. The workshop has also been devoted to
the frequently asked questions (FAQ).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Implement a systematic plan for the design and construction of pile foundations
Select appropriate subsurface exploration procedures and laboratory tests to provide design soil parameters for pile foundation
design
Choose the appropriate pile type in a given soil profile based on the advantages and disadvantages of common pile types
Use appropriate methods of pile foundation design in application subsurface conditions
Calculate single and group capacities of piles to resist compression, tension, and lateral loads
Identify the project influence and significance of pile driveability, pile refusal, and minimum and estimated pile toe elevations
Calculate allowable design and allowable driving stresses for common pile types
Determine the primary consolidation settlement of piled foundations on cohesive soils
Determine the settlement of piled foundations on cohesionless soils
Identify the format and minimum content in an adequate foundation report for driven pile foundations
Use dynamic pile testing and static load testing correctly and effectively
Explain appropriate methods of pile installation

Pile & Raft (Mat) Foundations / FINITE ELEMENT METHOD


Economical & Robust Design of Building and Industrial Structures

25th - 26th - 27th June 2015
Mumbai

29th - 30th June & 01st July 2015


New Delhi

Course Facilitator: Mr. M. H. Joshi.


Post his graduation from Pune University (1973) and M.Tech in Structural Engineering from I.I.T Kanpur 1975, he joined
TATA CONSULTING ENGINEERS (TCE) in Mumbai. He worked there for 20 years and during this tenure he worked as a
Design Engineer for 3 Nuclear Power Plants (Narora, Kakrapar & Tarapur 500 MW). During that era Computer Aided
Design Packages were not available and therefore, called for development of INHOUSE written Computer Programs. He has
also published a large number Technical Research Papers in National and International Forums mainly in the field of civil
engineering related to Nuclear power plants.
He got a PostGraduate Diploma in Software Technology from NCST in 1982, and used this knowledge for development of many
computer programs including the use of FINITE ELEMENT METHOD (FEM), wherein he has a lot of expertise.
Later he joined UHDE INDIA as Manager (Civil) in 1995, and was elevated to the position of Head of Department Civil in
1999. As a HOD he actively participated in many National and International projects bagged by UIL and contributed to many
success stories for his company.
In April 2007, Government of India appointed him as a technical expert member on Civil Engineering Safety Committee of Atomic
Energy Regulatory Board & since then he has remained an active participant.
After retirement from UHDE India, Post 2010, teaching young Civil Engineers is a passion for him and insists on use of
innovation as one of the important tool for successful project implementation.

Description :
Specifying and designing piled foundations requires a basic understanding of geotechnical and structural design techniques,
construction methods and procedures. This course, which is delivered by structural engineers, considers these aspects. Worked
examples and tutorials are included in the sessions.
Content :
Concept of pile foundations
Pile types by method of load transmission and placing
Pile testing
Soil investigation
Design of piles on different types of soil
Pile driving formulae
Design of pile groups
Lateral loading and settlement
Design of pile caps, ground beam systems
Objectives :
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
understand the geotechnical design of piles and pile groups using soil investigation data undertake the structural design of piles,
pile caps and ground beam systems.
