Design calculations Design of shallow foundation

Meyerhoffs Bearing Capacity

Formula that is using,

qu = C.Nc.Fcs.Fcd.Fci + q.Nq.Fqs.Fqd.Fqi + ..B.N.Fs.Fd.Fi


Assuming that the foundation is square footing (BxB) When = 0,

Nc = 5.14

Nq = 1 N=0 Shape Factor Fcs =


1+ B Nq . = 1 + (0.19) = 1.19 L Nc

Fqs =
1+ B tan = 1 L

Depth Factor (if Df / B 1) Fcd =


1 + 0.4 Df 3 1.2 = 1 + 0.4( ) = 1 + B B B

Fqd =
1 + 2 tan (1 sin ) 2 ( Df 3 ) = 1 + 2 tan 0(1 sin 0) 2 ( ) = 1 B B

Inclination Factor Fci = Fqi =


(1

2 ) = (1 0) 2 = 1 90

Therefore, qu = 10(5.14)(1.19)(1+1.2/B)(1)+ 1.05 (1 + (0.26/B) 1 [13.63x0.2 + 2.8(16.09-9.81)](1) (1)(1)(1) = 61.166 +(73.4 /B) + 20.31

= 81.476 + (73.4 /B) q = Df = [13.63x0.2 + 2.8(16.09-9.81)] = 20.31 kN/m2

q(net)all = (qu q)/Fs = (81.476 + (73.4 /B) - 20.31) / 3 = 20.39 + (24.47 /B) Q(net)all = q(net)all x B2 3000 = [20.39 + (24.47 /B)]B2 [20.39 + (24.47 /B)]B2 3000 = 0

B = 11.54 m

Use B =12m

Check assumption and depth factor

Df / B = 3 / 11.54 = 0.26 < 1 (adequate) Since that the value of Df / B is less than 1. Therefore the assumption that we make for the calculation design part is correct.

Check Contact Pressure

qmax

= Q/ BL (1 6e / B) where e = 0 = (3000/122) = 20.83 kN/m2

q(net)all = 20.39 + (24.47/12) = 22.43 kN/m2 Conclusion for Shallow Foundation Design Q(net)all is smaller than Q(net)all, and qmax is larger than the allowable stress, hence, using shallow foundation is not adequate. Besides that, it is not economical if using value of width, 12m to design the shallow foundation. Using Pile foundation would be a more appropriate approach.

Discussion To evaluate which pile is more economical, different types of pile were used in

the pile foundation design. In this project, RC pile and Spun pile are selected for comparison. The results from the calculations are shown in the table below: Compression load (kN) Type RC pile (350 x 350 mm) Spun pile (350 mm) 4 5 17 24 500 3000

From the table above, it is clearly seen that spun pile requires more piles to sustain the same load. Although the diameter for both piles are the same, RC pile with a square size will have a greater surface area and end bearing area compares to round spun pile. Hence, RC pile can sustain greater load. However, the cost for the spun pile is generally lower than RC pile. Therefore, the other factors should be included for getting the most cost effective pile. These factors are shown in the table below: Type Dimension (mm) RC pile Spun pile 350 x 350 350 Length (m/pile) 6 6 Price of material ($/m) 48 31.75

The table above shows that the price for spun pile is much lower than RC pile per meter. Each pile length have six meter length and pile design for 28 meter depth, so there are five numbers of pile required for one single pile. Compression load of 500kN RC pile: 4 x 48 x (6 x 5) = RM 5760

From the table shown above, we can initially make a conclusion that using RC pile is more costly if compared to Spun pile. Although the number of RC pile required is less than spun pile, but total amount calculated that need to purchase is higher than Spun pile. By using spun pile, we can save up the cost up to RM 997.50. Besides, the wastage of RC pile and spun pile showing that the wastage in RC pile is more costly compared to spun pile. Therefore, the more economical pile type can be concluded is Spun pile.

From the table shown above, we can initially make a conclusion that using RC pile is more costly if compared to Spun pile. Although the number of RC pile required is less than spun pile, but total amount calculated that need to purchase is higher than Spun pile. By using spun pile, we can save up the cost of material purchasing in foundation design. Besides, the wastage of RC pile and spun pile showing that the wastage in RC pile is more wasting compared to spun pile. Therefore, the more economical pile type can be concluded is Spun pile.

Conclusion In foundation design, there are shallow foundation and pile foundation. However,

shallow foundation is not suitable for soil surface which are too soft and cannot sustain the load from the building. When shallow foundation failed, pile foundation design need to be carried on. In designing pile foundation, there are different types of pile exist in Malaysia. Different types of pile are particularly for different condition of foundation. In this report, there are two types of pile are being compared. From the discussion, Spun pile can be concluded that is more economical compared to RC pile. However, spun pile are more wasting of spaces as the number of pile required is higher that RC pile. Lastly, Spun pile cut down the cost of material purchasing compared to RC pile. Therefore, it is more economical compared to RC pile.
