An engineer asked me a suggestion on the type of foundation to adopt for the enlargement of a building on a hilly slope. The foundation of the old part of the building is constituted by beams on silty clays. The ground of foundation of the new part shows a changement; in fact there are fessurates clays . Some buildings around there founded over this kind of clay have brought some small lesions. Is it possible to adopt another type of foundation (to es. piles) for the new part in comparison to the old part, considering that both of them will settled up to constitute an only one building? Thanks for the collaboration.
