    Advantages and Disadvantages of Raft Foundations. Raft foundations tend to be cheaper and quicker to use than traditional footings. There are a number of reasons why this is the case: The foundation and floor slab is combined, which saves time and materials; Less excavation is required; Other reasons that make raft foundations preferable to. This book covers complete design of raft foundations including piled rafts, starting from their need, type, all the approaches suggested so far in published literature, effect of assumptions made and values of variables selected, on the design values of stresses and brings out the limitations of these approaches using actually constructed rafts/5(4).

    Raft and Mat foundation are both same!! Don’t confuse with names. Raft foundation is a thick concrete slab reinforced with steel which covers the entire contact area of the structure like a thick floor. Sometimes area covered by raft may be greate. C. Mat Foundation (Raft Foundation) It is a combined footing that may cover the entire area under a structure supporting several columns and walls. Mat foundations are sometimes preferred for soils that have low load-bearing capacities, but that will have to support high column or wall Size: KB.

Raft foundations. Raft foundations are essentially large plan area foundations built either solidly or in cellular form. They may be employed for lightly loaded structures on soft natural ground or on other ground where weak zones exist.

In this case the raft is designed to span across such zones with tolerable bearing pressures and. The extensive foundation (which is usually called raft foundation), is a unified foundation that extends throughout the entire area of the columns.

As a rule, raft foundation is used as a building’s foundation when the soil has a low bearing capacity. The behaviour of the raft foundation resembles the behaviour of a strip foundation grid.

Available Textbooks, Handbooks, Various Publications And Papers Give Widely Different Approaches For Design Of Raft Foundations. These Approaches Make Their Own Assumptions And Deal With Ideal Raft, Symmetrical In Shape And Loading. In Actual Practice Rafts Are Rarely So.

A Structural Designer Engaged In The Design Of Raft Foundations Finds It Hard To Select 5/5(1). Comm on types of raft foundations A true Raft foundations book or raft is a flat concrete slab with uniform thickness throughout the entire area Fi g (a), this type is most suitable where t he.

This book examines alternative design procedures for plain and piled raft foundations. It explores the assumptions that are made in the analysis of soil - structure interaction, together with the associated calculation methods.

The book gives many examples of project applications covering a wide range of structural forms and ground conditions.4/5(4). RE: Raft foundation book BigH (Geotechnical) 4 Dec 16 I don't remember seeing a book exclusively to raft foundations - but I'd suggest a first view using M.J.

Tomlinson's Design and Construction of Foundations. Raft foundation. Raft foundations (sometimes referred to as raft footings or mat foundations) are formed by reinforced concrete slabs of uniform thickness (typically mm to mm) that cover a wide area, often the entire footprint of a building.

Design of Reinforced Concrete Foundations - Kindle edition by Varghese, P.C. Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Design of Reinforced Concrete Foundations/5(14). Raft foundation is generally used to support structures like residential or commercial buildings where soil condition is poor, storage tanks, silos, foundations for heavy industrial equipment etc.

Working Principle of Raft Foundation. To get a better idea about when to use raft foundation, it is important to understand how raft foundation works.

Raft foundations are the favorite choice for most of the designers; but nowadays, due to constraints of cost increment decreasing availability of land because of rapid industrialization.

A raft foundation is often used when the soil is weak, as it distributes the weight of the building over the entire area of the building, and not over smaller zones (like individual footings) or at individual points (like pile foundations).This reduces the stress on the soil.

The concept of stress is very basic to civil engineering. Raft foundation R A F T F O U N D A T I O N S 8 9. TYPES OF RAFT FOUNDATIONS R A F T F O U N D A T I O N S 9 TO DESIGN RAFT FOUNDATIONS: 1. Determine the capacity of the foundation 2. Determine the settlement of foundation 3.

So in this read I will be going to explain in-depth the various benefits of raft foundation. Raft foundation which is also sometimes termed as mat foundation is a reinforced. This second edition, gives examples of the application of the soil-line method, explaining the practical application of the subject, giving particular attention to the design of raft foundations for framed buildings.

cms x 17cms. Pp, 89 figure illustrations, slight rippling to fore-edge. A raft foundation is a reinforced concrete slab under the whole of a building or extension, 'floating' on the ground as a raft floats on water.

This type of foundation spreads the load of the building over a larger area than other foundations, lowering the pressure on the ground. This is an alternative if you can't use a traditional strip or trench fill foundations. This book examines alternative design procedures for plain and piled raft foundations.
