NPTEL Courses

Advanced Foundation Engineering

This course will cover various aspects of foundation engineering including soil exploration, details of shallow and deep foundations, retaining walls. The soil-foundation interaction will also be discussed along with the numerical solution techniques of beams and plates resting on an elastic foundation bed. The behavior and design methods of foundation on reinforced earth will be discussed. The advanced theories and design of various foundation components will be discussed in a logical way. The earth pressure theories for designing the retaining walls will be discussed. The codal provisions of the design of various types of foundation will also be discussed. (from nptel.ac.in )
