Most structures are on shallow foundations. The foundations must withstand the structure's weight without moving. This course explains in straightforward terms the soils aspects of shallow design. Site investigation, soil properties, strength of soils, bearing capacity, and compressibility of soils are examined with the particular points of interest to shall foundations. This course covers the elements of each so the user gains understanding of the importance of each, and how to perform each step.
