SF7201 SHALLOW FOUNDATIONS Syllabus | Anna University Regulation 2013 ME Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering First Year Second Semester Syllabus.  Below is the Anna University 2013 Regulation Syllabus for 2nd Semester for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Textbooks, Reference books, Exam portions, Question Bank, Previous year question papers, Model question papers, Class notes, Important 2 marks, 8 marks, 16 marks topics.
It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.



 To impart knowledge to select, analyse and geotechnical and structural design of shallow foundation depending on ground condition.
UNIT I SHALLOW FOUNDATIOS 6 Types of foundations – Types of shallow foundation – Design concept - General requirements - Additional consideration - selection of type of foundation - hostile environment. 

UNIT II BEARING CAPACITY 9 Theories of bearing capacity – Ultimate Bearing capacity - Homogeneous - Layered soils – Rocks - Evaluation of bearing capacity from in-situ tests – Safe bearing capacity – Bearing capacity of foundations in slope – Bearing capacity under eccentric loading – Codal provisions. 

UNIT III SETTLEMENT AND ALLOWABLE BEARING PRESSURE 9 Component of settlement-immediate, primary and secondary consolidation settlement-stress path method of settlement evaluation-layered soil - construction period correction. evaluation from in-situ tests – Allowable settlement – Allowable bearing pressure - codal provisions. 

UNIT IV INTERACTIVE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF FOUNDATIONS 12 Analysis of foundation - isolated - strip - combined footings and mat foundations. Conventional - elastic approach - Soil Structure Interaction Principles - Application - Numerical techniques - finite element method - Software applications 

UNIT V FOUNDATION FOR SPECIAL CONDITIONS 9 Structural Design of shallow foundations – Limit state method-codal provisions- Special foundations - Foundation design in relation to ground movements - Foundation on compressible fills – Foundation for tower-Design of Foundation for seismic forces - Codal Provisions 

 Students are able to select, analyse and design shallow foundation based on both the type of soil and loading.
