Deep foundation systems provide improved resistance to settlement and can safely support buildings founded on very poor soils. Deep foundations can also improve building performance by providing resistance to uplift loading. The design of deep foundations involves both the Geotechnical Engineer and the Structural Engineer. Thus, it is wise for the structural engineer to become more educated regarding deep foundation design. This presentation will provide an overview of deep foundations, including various systems in common use, such as driven precast concrete and structural steel piles, augercast piles, cast-in-drilled-hole piles, and micropiles. Mr. Harris will discuss the behavior of each system, as well as its best uses and limitations. The presentation will also include a worked example design for cast-in-place concrete piles resisting vertical and lateral loads.
Stephen Harris has practiced structural engineering for over 30 years and is a principal at Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc. He is a graduate of the University of California at Davis and a registered Structural Engineer. His experience includes design of new structures, seismic strengthening of existing structures and design of pile foundation systems. His pile foundation designs include the 49ers Levi’s Stadium, Facebook’s new West Campus, Samsung’s new American Headquarters in San Jose, and the new Control Tower at San Francisco International Airport. Other noteworthy recent projects include the seismic upgrade of the War Memorial Veterans Building in San Francisco, the expansion, remodel, and seismic upgrade of the J. Paul Leonard & Sutro Library at San Francisco State University, design of the 29-story 199 Fremont office building in San Francisco and the design of forty-two new Bachelor Enlisted Quarters buildings at USMC Base, Camp Pendleton, CA.
