AUTOMATED ASSISTANCE FOR FOUNDATION ENGINEERS(AAFE)

Abstract


Foundation is an important part of a building, as it safely transmits the entire building weight down to the earth. If the foundation fails, then the entire structure is likely to collapse. the type of foundation to be adopted for a building varies from soil to soil. There are a wide variety of soils ranging from soft black cotton soils to hard rock soils. It is a difficult task for structural engineers to determine the soil type, and thereby to decide the foundation that is suitable to that soil type. Automated Assistance For Foundation Engineers(AAFE) is a tool developed to assist the structural engineers to determine the soil type based on soil properties and soil test results, and thereby to further decide about the suitable foundation. This paper aims at elaborating the tool, its development and working scenarios.
