This is a concise, systematic and complete treatment of the design and construction of pile foundations. Discusses pile behavior under various loadings and types of piles and their installation, including consideration of soil parameters. It provides step-by-step design procedures for piles subject to vertical loading and pullout, lateral, inclined and eccentric loads, or dynamic loads, and for piles in permafrost. Also describes load test procedures and their interpretation and buckling of long, slender piles with and without supported length. The closing chapter presents case histories of prediction and performance of piles and pile groups. Includes numerous solved problems.

Soft soils present particular challenges to engineers and an understanding of the specific characteristics of these soils is indispensable. Laboratory techniques such as numerical modelling, theoretical analysis and constitutive modelling give new insights into soft soil material behaviour, while large-scale testing in the field provides important information in areas such as slope stability and soft soil improvements. This collection of papers from the Fourth International Conference on Soft Soil Engineering, Vancouver, 2006, presents an international appraisal of current research and new advances in engineering practices, illustrating the theory with relevant case studies. Geotechnical professionals, engineers, academics and researchers working in the areas of soft ground engineering and soft soil engineering will find this a valuable book.

Die Gründung baulicher Anlagen ist in DIN 1054 und den ergänzenden Grundbaunormen, die in der Liste der Technischen Baubestimmungen aufgeführt sind, geregelt. Danach können reine Pfahlgründungen oder reine Flachgründungen bemessen und ausgeführt werden. Die Kombination beider Gründungselemente Pfahl und Fundamentplatte war bisher nicht geregelt. Diese Lücke wird mit der "Richtlinie für den Entwurf, die Bemessung und den Bau von Kombinierten Pfahl-Plattengründungen (KPP)" - kurz "KPP-Richtlinie" geschlossen. Im vorliegenden Buch wird die KPP-Richtlinie durch den "Anhang zur KPP-Richtlinie", ergänzt, der aus zwei Teilen besteht: Teil A: Zum "mechanischen Modell" und zu den "Sicherheitsfestlegungen" Teil B: Berechnungsbeispiele. Der Anhang gibt der Fachöffentlichkeit Hintergrundinformationen zu den "mechanischen Modellen", den "Sicherheitsbetrachtungen auf probabilistischer Grundlage" und enthält zwei praxisbezogene Beispiele. Das erste Beispiel behandelt die innere und äußere Standsicherheit der Gründung eines Brückenpfeilers. Vier Gründungsvarianten, die ausführlich diskutiert werden, machen den Einsatzbereich der KPP deutlich. Das zweite Beispiel behandelt die äußere Standsicherheit der Gründung eines Bürogebäudes. Es werden drei Gründungsvarianten behandelt. Auf die Berechnung der inneren Standsicherheit wird hier verzichtet, da sie keine neuen Gesichtspunkte bietet. Da auch der Rechengang zur Ermittlung der äußeren Standsicherheit analog dem des ersten Beispiels ist, werden hier nur die Ergebnisse mitgeteilt. Die Ergebnisse beider Beispiele zur Ermittlung der äußeren Standsicherheit dienen gleichzeitig als "Benchmark-Beispiele" zur Überprüfung vereinfachter Berechnungsansätze.

Deep excavations in densely populated urban areas around the world pose specific challenges due to the increasingly complex conditions in which they are undertaken. The construction of underground car parks, cellar storage areas and major infrastructure in deep excavations helps to preserve the quality of space above ground. Despite the considerable effort that goes into their design and construction, such projects often encounter problems, such as damage to existing structures, delays and cost overruns. This book presents the results of an extensive research project conducted at the University of Cambridge, in cooperation with the Netherlands Centre of Underground Construction (COB) and Deltares, the Dutch Institute for water, subsurface and infrastructure issues. The study gained insight into mechanisms of soil-structure interaction for piled buildings adjacent to deep excavations and resulted in suggestions for designing and monitoring deep excavations in urban areas with soft soil conditions. Monitoring data of the construction of three deep excavations for the North–South metro line in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, have been used to validate the methods described. This book aims to contribute to the reduction of failure costs in the building industry, and in underground construction in particular.

With construction techniques becoming ever more complex, and population pressure leading to the development of increasingly problematic sites, expertise in the area of soil structure interaction is crucial to architectural and construction industries worldwide. This book contains the proceedings of the ISSMGE Technical Committee 207 International Conference on Geotechnical Engineering - Soil Structure Interaction and Retaining Walls - held in St Petersburg, Russia, in June 2014. The conference was dedicated to the memory of the outstanding geotechnical expert Gregory Porphyryevich Tschebotarioff. Topics covered at the conference included: soil structure interaction, underground structures and retaining walls, site investigation as a source of input parameters for soil structure interaction, and interaction between structures and frozen soils. The papers included here are the English language papers. Papers presented by the authors in Russian are published by the Georeconstruction Institute of St. Petersburg.
