Abstract

The design of shallow foundations is performed in accordance with different building regulations depending on geotechnical and geological conditions. This paper involves the design calculations applying Kazakhstani and European approaches. The design of shallow foundations in Nur-Sultan city in Kazakhstan was implemented by the calculation of bearing capacity and elastic settlement in accordance with the design procedures provided in SP RK 5.01-102-2013: Foundations of buildings and structures, and Eurocode 7: Geotechnical design. The calculated results of bearing capacity and elastic settlement for two types of shallow foundations such as pad foundation and strip foundation adhering to Kazakhstani and European approaches are relatively comparable. However, European approach provided higher values of bearing capacity and elastic settlement for the designed shallow foundation compared to Kazakhstani approach. The difference of the results is explained by the application of different values of partial factors of safety for the determination of bearing capacity and different methods for the calculation of elastic settlement (i.e. elasticity theory and layer summation method) of shallow foundation.
