About Foundation Design Online Project-based Course

Tall buildings in excess of 100 meters in height pose a great challenge for civil engineers to design and construct, particularly the relations between the structural and geo-technical design. All the structural and geo-technical designers had to resort to sophisticated analysis and design methodologies to overcome the complicancies involved in the traditional methodologies. With this, it is very evident that the construction industry requires a number of skilled civil engineers who can solve the challenges involved in the geo-technical designs.

Through this project-based course, you will learn about the design considerations involved in foundation analysis, varied loads acting on the system and use an industrial grade software (SAFE) to analyse & design various shallow foundations like isolated, combined and mat footings considering the loads according to IS codes.

By doing this foundation design project-based course, you will practically learn about the design considerations of foundation systems, shallow foundations (isolated, combined & mat) analysis and design, reinforcement detailing & scheduling and also the generation of project reports.
