Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. 15 minute breakout 1. What are the 2 basic different types of foundations? When would we use one versus the other? 2. In each of the two types – what are the subtypes and when would you use them?
  • 3.
    • Shallow and deep foundations
    • Shallow – soil directly below walls and columns bear the weight of the building. Cheaper. Ideal for high water table and relatively light building.
    • Deep – Soil conditions directly below the building not suitable therefore structure required to reach deeper to appropriate soil conditions.
  • 4. Shallow – Types. A. Slab on grade – high water table – common in BA B. Crawl Space – common for wood frame – access to utilities C. Basement – Storage and utilities
  • 5.
    • Slab on grade- assembly
    • Trench for utilities
    • Trench for footings
    • Rebar in footings
    • Pour footings
    • Waterproof membrane
    • Sand
    • Reinforcing for slab
    • Concrete slab pour
  • 6.  
  • 7.  
  • 8.  
  • 9.  
  • 10.
    • Footings for crawl spaces and basements.
    • spread the force of the vertical loads of columns and walls over more soil area
    • Spread footing
    • Column footing
  • 11.
    • Concrete footings and foundations
    • Foundations poured separately from vertical carrying structure.
    • Waterproofing issues
    • Drain the water –remove pressure on walls
    • Keep water out of the building
  • 12.  
  • 13.  
  • 14.  
  • 15.
    • Deep foundations – Pile driving
    • Reach down to bedrock for poor soil conditions
    • Pile caps/ grade beams support columns and walls
    • Concrete slab
  • 16.  
  • 17.  
  • 18.
    • Deep foundations –
    • Mat slabs, Excavation and retaining walls
    • Mat slab – very think slab (6’) with a lot of steel reinforcing that replaces individual column footings
    • Excavation sequence
    • 1. Drive soldier beams – steel into ground
    • 2. Place wood lagging between beams as you excavate down to retain soil
  • 19.  
  • 20.  
  • 21.  
  • 22.  
  • 23.  
  • 24.
    • Below grade foundation walls and waterproofing
    • Protection board
    • Waterproof membrane
    • Concrete retaining wall
