Languages of Instruction : Turkish
Course Goals :
Course Aims : The main principle in foundation engineering is to support the building on shallow foundations, especially on single square footings. The existing soil at a construction site may not always be totaly suitable for supporting structures on single footings in such a condition. If it is not possible to use single footings, one can use mat foundations. In Turkey, engineers prefer to construct buildings on deep foundations when the building loads are high. But, shallow foundations on improved site may stil offer cheaper way. Today, with the common ground is met problematic. On the ground floor of this building before stabilization is required.
