Course Aims
Foundations and their interaction with soil is very important on design procedure. The reality of ongoing design of foundations without required knowledge showed the importance of the subject after the 1999 earthquakes. In this course it is intended the engineers to have the ability to design shallow and deep foundations by using the right and reasonable way.
Course Goals
 
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Ability to design shallow foundations
2) Ability to design deep foundations
3) Ability to choose and design appropriate foundation type under given soil and load conditions
Course Contents
Presentation of foundation environment, classification of foundations, soil investigations for buildings, bearing capacity of shallow foundations, settlement of shallow foundations, bearing capacity of deep foundations, settlement of deep foundations.

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
