Dr Srinath Shetty from NMAMIT - Nitte delivered a talk on Pile Foundation- Design and Construction on 18th March between 2:00 -4:00 PM. Dr Nalini Rebello welcomed the guest to the program.
Dr Srinath Shetty, in his talk, spoke about the circumstances in which Pile Foundations are used, the types of pile foundations based on the method and type of construction. Every method of pile foundation construction has its own advantages and limitations. A cast in place pile may have the disadvantages of not ensuring that the concrete is poured in the right place and properly compacted. When pre-cast piles are used in a site, extra precaution has to be taken to ensure that the depth of the piles must reach the underground rock level. This is because the underground terrain may vary from place to place and a single length of pile may not suffice. He further explained about ways of increasing the length of pre-cast piles. When pre-cast piles are driven the negative skin friction may induce extra stresses on the pile which can be reduced by proper design. Thus, proper design of piles based on the underground strata will be helpful for a good design. The session concluded with an interaction with the students followed by vote of thanks.
