  3. Foundations for Industrial Machines

    Handbook for Practising Engineers

    By K.G. Bhatia

    The performance, safety and stability of machines depends largely on their design, manufacturing and interaction with environment. Machine foundations should be designed in such a way that the dynamic forces transmitted to the soil through the foundation, eliminating all potentially harmful forces....

  10. Rapid Load Testing on Piles

    Edited by Paul Holscher, Frits A. van Tol

    To obtain data about the stiffness and bearing capacity of a foundation pile, the Rapid Load Test could be an effective and economic alternative for a static load test. In order to judge this, the influence of rate effects in clay and pore water pressures in sand should first be understood. This...
