4 lectures 00:01

• To study the different methods for analyzing and designing foundation structures.

• Foundation structures are responsible for safely transferring the load of the superstructure (building, bridges, etc.) to the supporting soil without failure or excessive settlement.

• In this course, we will discuss three different types of foundations:

• Shallow Foundations

• Deep Foundations

• Lateral earth retaining structures

• Understanding the principles of soil mechanics is a prerequisite to learning this course
