Foundations: static and dynamics tests

José Carlos A. Cintra , Nelson Aoki , Cristina de H. C. Tsuha , Heraldo L. Giacheti

Foundations: static and dynamics tests covers both the geotechnical research – SPT (dynamic) and CPT (almost static) tests used in the design phase of a foundations – such as static and dynamic load testing, mainly used as tools for performance verification of deep foundations. In the dynamic loading test, the Brazilian improvement is highlighted: the use of increasing energy in successive blows.

 

Aimed at students of Civil Engineering and beginners in foundations, it is an objective and didactic work, reflecting the extraordinary teaching capacity of its authors. With the works Shallow Foundations and Deep Foundations, already published by Oficina de Textos, it forms the triad of foundations’ textbooks.
