Online Design of Shallow Foundations Training


Delegates should have a basic understanding of geotechnical design, and have attended
our Decoding Eurocode 7 -Basis of geotechnical design (or similar) course.

Eurocode 7 is the current European and British standard for geotechnical design. This
course takes a detailed look at those clauses that deal with shallow foundations,
including footings, gravity walls, and slopes. The course concentrates on practical
aspects of design, which delegates will need to understand in order to implement the
code. Practical tutorials show how to design shallow foundations to Eurocode 7.

Aims and objectives

On completion of this course, delegates will have a detailed knowledge of the design of
shallow foundations to Eurocode 7 and be able to apply them to practical design

Course outline

1. Slopes and embankments
2. Spread foundations
3. Gravity walls
4. Ground improvement and reinforcement
5. Calculation models for shallow foundations


1. Road cutting using design charts
2. Strip footing on clay
3. T-shaped gravity wall with dry fill

Intended audience

Geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, civil engineers, structural engineers
involved in shallow foundation design, clients, contractors, regulators.


The course is given by Dr Andrew Bond. Andrew is Immediate Past Chairman of CEN
committee TC250/SC7, responsible for the maintenance and evolution of Eurocode 7.

Course duration and delivery

The course is delivered publically in the classroom over one full day.
