Structure & Foundation Analysis

Foundation, an eminent element for any kind of construction and infrastructure development. For any kind of civil engineering projects foundation turned out to be most important aspect. With Foundation Analysis workshop we address about right approach towards soil foundation analysis used in infra projects. The concept of Foundation Analysis covers both Structural Engineering & Geo Technical Engineering. The session will be focused on Computational Analysis Methods, Geo technical characteristics of soil, variety of soil foundations necessary for different soil profiles, and other tools, techniques & processes used for soil foundation engineering.

Prerequisites: –
  • Can access computer system and make use of internet to perform search over Google.


Need to Prepare?
  • Prior programming experience is not required. Basic knowledge of Civil Engineering with design concepts will be appreciated.


Tools Expected: –
  • Windows OS based PC, Smart phone with Internet, Notebook and Pen


Tools Used (for the session): –
  • Sample Codes, Software, PPTs, Reference Materials



Design Concepts, CAD Analysis, Load Analysis, Fabrication and Testing



This workshop will address about the concepts of Structural engineering and Geo technical engineering. Participants will get familiar with knowledge of computational analysis methods, Geo technical characteristics of soil, variety of soil foundations necessary for different soil profiles, and all tools and techniques used for soil foundation engineering.
