Please excuse my ignorance on the subject.
This is the first time I am designing piled rafts. I have a few questions for which I would appreciate some direction/references.
1.How to determine the thickness of piled raft?A expert give me this formula to determine thickness,But I cant realize this formula.
"10 (700*4.448)^0.5 in mm
2.Say a column load is 700 kips,pile can carry 300 kips,how to transfer safely rest 400 kips load by raft?I know there are some calculation,please anyone share with me.
