Professor GIUSEPPE MORTARA
Objectives The course aims at providing the knowledge on the behaviour of both shallow and deep foundations. A fundamental aspect deals with the mechanical characteristic of soils that are essential for the design of foundations and the study of soil-structure interaction. To this goal, the methods based on ultimate limit state and the serviceability limit state are analysed. The course is divided into lessons and exercises that are devoted to the analysis of real problems.
Programme Soil mechanics; Constitutive law in geotechnical engineering; Ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations: limit state analysis, bearing capacity factors; Soil structure interaction; Pile foundations: ultimate limit load for vertical and horizontal loads, displacement of single and group piles.
