RE: SOIL PROFILE TYPE FOR STRUCTURE OVER WATER

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would guess that since the building is on piles, the water depth has very
little to do with the actual soil classification, i.e. similar to design of
pile foundations in liquifiable soils.  The Sf soils analysis is complicated
and should be carried out by a qualified geotechnical company.  The pile
design should be based on the results of that analysis.  The battered piles
will help to brace the cantilevered section of the piles above the mudline.

My question relates more to the building being over water which the UBC
makes no mention of. Without the water the site would be class Sf.
