Abstract

For a particular arrangement of superstructure, soil strength is the most important factor affecting the design of its supporting raft and hence the cost of construction. Folding of raft or folded plate foundations can be used to reduce the material consumption in a raft design. The beneficial effects to foundation and superstructure design by the selective soil improvement below a raft or folded plate foundation were studied in this paper with the help of Winkler and continuum methods of soil modelling.
