|Title of the thesis:||Geotechnical design - Case study|
|Summary:||Geotechnical engineering is a very promising field of engineering. Moreover, it is a very interesting field which is developed for many years. The word geotechnical" refers to the geological components of the earth, like the earth and soil, and also the groundwater. To be more specific, geotechnical engineering that may appeal to some civil engineering majors is the chance to do a lot of field work. Some of your work will also be in an office.The purpose of this Diploma thesis was to analyse the geotechnical design of foundation of the building in an urban area and to estimate the foundation settlement using three different software modules from GEO5 software (Spread Footing, Settlement, Plate - Slab) and after to compare the results. Foundation settlement, nowadays is a very important problem, that many buildings around the world suffer about this problem. Some settlement is quite normal after construction has been completed, but unequal (differential) settlement may cause significant problems for buildings. For the estimation and verification of the foundation settlement I used three different geological profiles and the three different GEO5 modules (three different types of calculation). During the analyse of the final results from the three geological profiles in module there is no significant difference. Differences occurs when I use different modules.|
