Lec4_Piled Raft

20-Oct-15 The take aways

20-Oct-15 The take aways from this presentation: Piled raft is very effective and economic solution in most situations for high rise towers and heavily loaded structures. Reduction in number of piles being between 50 to 75% resulting in savings of cost and time. We need to improve on estimation of soil moduli in case of cohesion-less soils and over consolidated clays. We should carry out many systematic settlement observations on all types of structures to improve our predictions. Lastly and most importantly, our geo-technical investigation practices have to reach global standards at the earliest.
