About this Unit
This unit will further develop students knowledge of substructures. Students will investigate how applied loads and the foundation reaction determine the construction of different retaining walls and footings. Students will specifically examine how surface and ground water affect a sub-structure. Students will be expected to solve difficult foundation problems using innovative techniques, including underpinning, grouting and temporary substructures. The types of sub-structures include strip footings, waffle-pod slabs, end-bearing and friction piles, gravity and cantilever retaining walls and tied-earth structures.
