Abstract

Foundation problems are normally associated with type of sub strata, soil, rock or any other foreign material' met with, and/or if choice of foundation is not compatible with them. In developing cities, the development stress is on highly developed congested areas, limiting the sub soil investigation, and plans to have high rise buildings, requiring deep foundations and sometimes execution of these posing site problems. The collapse of a multi-storeyed structure caused, according to geotechnical engineers due to overlooking the existence of a drain and a few cases of "composite" foundations are described.

Foundation Problems in a Developing City

St. Louis, Missouri

Foundation problems are normally associated with type of sub strata, soil, rock or any other foreign material' met with, and/or if choice of foundation is not compatible with them. In developing cities, the development stress is on highly developed congested areas, limiting the sub soil investigation, and plans to have high rise buildings, requiring deep foundations and sometimes execution of these posing site problems. The collapse of a multi-storeyed structure caused, according to geotechnical engineers due to overlooking the existence of a drain and a few cases of "composite" foundations are described.
