Foundation Design


Ensuring Long-Term Stability

Foundation design in rock mechanics engineering is essential in the creation of secure and stable structures. To achieve this, very high load bearing foundations and piles are driven deep into the rock layer to increase its bearing capacity, much like in deep foundations. This is because rock provides much better bearing capacity than soil, creating ideal conditions for structures that are built to last and withstand the Earth’s movement over time.

As natural events such as earthquakes and floods generate significant changes in mass loads, infrastructures must be built to withstand these risks and create a safe environment for our communities. These foundation designs must be economically viable, with an optimized design that considers damaging effects of these phenomena and a level of durability that guarantees the infrastructures’ sustainability.


Suitable & Unsuitable Rock Conditions

While unweathered rock can have an immensely high bearing capacity upwards of 60 tsf, weathered rock can present great challenges as it is subject to further chemical weathering, making it unsuitable for the use of foundation design. We are well-versed in determining the overall strength of the rock mass in the area of construction and highly knowledgeable in identifying problematic rocks. The identification of rock type is essential in the effectiveness of our work and our team of foundation and tunnelling engineers.

With our team’s expertise in geotechnical engineering and state-of-the-art technologies, we can deliver designs that meet the highest standards of excellence and professionalism. Our approach includes a comprehensive analysis of the soil-structure interaction, utilizing the latest software to ensure accurate and reliable results. Trust RMTEC to provide you with innovative solutions that meet your project’s unique requirements.
