Design of Equipment Foundations
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Calculate dynamic loads from various types of machinery
- Follow the decision process to select the type of foundation: shallow or pile
- Build on your understanding of the dynamic response of tabletop structures for equipment support
- Analyze the dynamic response of various types of shallow and pile foundations
- Apply the knowledge of analysis and design procedure for equipment foundation design and evaluate vibration damage and take suitable remedial measures
The course considers loads induced by different machinery, modes of structural response of the foundation and/or supporting frame, as well as the response and damping provided by the soils. It covers fundamentals of machine dynamics for the derivation of the applied loads, the behaviour of different types of rigid block and pile-supported foundations, analysis and design of tabletop structures for equipment support, machine foundations on frozen soils, vibration damage assessment and prevention.
This course will start with the concepts and practical “rules of thumb” used in the preliminary layout and sizing of the foundations and focus on the explanation and demystifying of the basic concepts, relating them to the first principles of engineering. You will be able to design equipment foundations using hand techniques, common finite element packages, and specialized software (DYNA 6).
