Complete course on Foundation Engineering

Course Description

Foundation is the element of a structure which connects it to the ground, and transfers loads from the structure to the ground. Foundation engineering is the application of soil mechanics and rock mechanics in the design of foundation elements of structures.All engineered construction resting on the earth must be supported by foundation. The objective of this course is to teach our learners the appropriate approach and in detailed knowledge on Foundation Design towards soil foundation analysis used in construction projects.

  •  Basic understanding of STAAD. Pro
  •  Basic Knowledge of Structural Engineering from education
  •  Working professionals and relevant students.
