|Title of the thesis:||Foundation design of the bridge on highway D4|
|Summary:||The aim of Master thesis is a design of foundation for selected piers (Pier no.3 and no.6)
of highway bridge (Object no.204) in Bratislava. Object no.204 will be a part of multiple
bridges in circumferential highway D4 which main purpose is the reduction of heavy (transit)
traffic in central city.
First part includes proposed design of bridge cross-sectional parameters, static system
and technical information about superstructure and substructure. Also provides theoretical
background used in design of foundation, requirements of Eurocode and determination of
loads acting on designed structure.
Second part elaborate engineering geological conditions of considered area with specific
character influenced by historical evolution of river Danube containing complex of Quaternary
sediments and Neogene soils. Evaluation of characteristic values of ground properties
is proposed based on ground testing and experience. Deformation parameters of individual
complexes are evaluated with statistical methods described in thesis by using set derived
values of ground properties obtained from dynamic penetration tests (DPS) for gravel complex
and Pressuremeter tests (PM) in Neogene soil. DPS and PM were realized at selected
locations of foundations along the bridge longitudinal axis.
Third and last part consist of final design of deep foundation as group of large diameter
piles considering relatively thin layer of gravel complex. Multiple approaches are used to
calculate bearing resistance of single pile and its transformation into pile group by using
efficiency factors of the pile group. Design must satisfy requirements according to limit states
theory with sufficient resistance against designed loads and limiting value of settlement for
