9781447112068: Geotechnical Design to Eurocode 7

The purpose of the Eurocodes is to achieve harmonization between structural and geotechnical design in Europe. All of the Eurocodes are based on the same limit state philosophy that has not been widely used before for geotechnical designs. This book gives a clear and detailed demonstration of how the philosophy and principles presented in Eurocode 7 (EC7), are applied in practice. Simple language and detailed examples are used to explain the clauses in EC7, which are written in the formal and often confusing Eurocode language. The worked examples of different geotechnical designs are an important feature of this book. In particular the authors explain how Cases A, B and C are used in geotechnical designs and how characteristic and design parameters are selected. The book also outlines the most recent developments that have occurred, such as the introduction of additional design cases, as EC7 moves towards publication as a full European standard. The types of design covered include: Shallow strip and pad foundations; Pile foundations; Cantilever and embedded sheet pile retaining walls; Ground anchors; Slope stability problems; Fills. This book is an essential source of information for practising engineers involved in geotechnical designs and for engineering geologists and others involved in ground investigations and the testing of soils. It will also be a valuable text for undergraduate and postgraduate civil engineering students.

Product Description:

The purpose of this book is to explain the philosophy set out in Eurocode 7, the new European code of practice for geotechnical design, and, by means of series of typical examples, to show how this philosophy is used in practice. This book is aimed at: • practising engineers, to assist them to carry out geotechnical designs to Eurocode 7 using the limit state design method and partial factors; • lecturers and students on courses where design to Eurocode 7 is being taught. It is envisaged that practising engineers, using this book to assist them carry out geotechnical designs to Eurocode 7, will have access to the prestandard version of Eurocode 7, ENV 1997 -I, so the authors have concentrated on the main principles and have not provided a commentary on all the clauses. However sufficient detail has been included in the book to enable it to be used on its own by those learning the design principles who may not have access to Eurocode 7. For example, the values of the partial factors and the principal equations given in Eurocode 7 have been included and these are used in the design examples in this book. To assist the reader, the numbering, layout and titles of the chapters closely follow those presented in Eurocode 7.
