Overview

After participating in this lecture you will be able to:

  • Determine the bearing capacity of foundations in frozen ground
  • Estimate potential settlement of different foundation systems
  • Determine proper foundation system for projects in frozen soil

Description
Foundations of structures built in frozen ground pose unique challenges that are different from warmer climates. These challenges include permafrost thawing and frost heave. Thawing can produce large differential settlements while frost heave can produce significant non-uniform uplift force to the foundation.

This webinar presents various design techniques that can be used for the design of shallow and pile foundations. Bearing capacity and creep settlement analyses will be discussed for both ice-poor and ice-rich conditions. All key concepts will be explained and emphasis will be placed on the practical application of the information provided.

Course Contents

  • Permafrost basic definitions
  • Strength and deformation characteristics of frozen ground
  • Common foundation types used in permafrost
  • Bearing capacity analysis for both shallow and deep foundations
  • Creep settlement of foundations in frozen soils

Who Should Attend
Those who deal with construction related geotechnical engineering issues or need to build background on geotechnical analyses and design including:
Civil, environmental and transportation engineers/technicians, as well as Geologists, city and public works officials/planners

Time: 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time
