Foundations (piles) in Rock – Serviceability Rules

Dr Chris M Haberfield

This lecture will challenge the conventional approaches to foundation design in rock. It will provide some insights into the geotechnical issues and performance of foundations in rock and will seek to provide a design approach which considers the whole process from ground investigation through design and construction to in-service performance.
