ASPECTS OF INTERWORKING STRUCTURE-FOUNDATIONFOUNDATION SOIL FOR SPECIAL CONSTRUCTIONS PUBLISHEDCarmen Aurelia Peptan, Virgil Haida, Floarea Maria Brebu
Choosing the type of structure and foundation appropriate to soil category on which is located the construction, is one of the hardest problem of structural engineering. The interaction between structure - foundation - soil (ISFS) represents the behaviour and respond way at the loads of ensemble construction-soil, considered as a unity, compound from constituent parts that have different geometrical and mechanical characteristics and between there exists a continuous process of redistribution of efforts during the progressive increasing of unequal settlement of supports, till the final values. The great variety of constructions structures, geotechnical properties of soils foundations, as many factors and parameters that interfere, it makes the results obtained by classical methods not to present satisfying correspondence between the theoretical an practical results. Hence, it results the conclusion that it’s necessary to give a particular importance of theoretical and practical determination of parameters and factors that interfere in an inter-working calculus.
