Mr. Richardson and Desi Kiss

Thanks for valuable comments and advice from both of you. The project is not yet underway and I have very few details available to go by. I am beginning to collect information which will guide me thru the design phase. Depending on the complexity, we may farm it out to a specialist as suggested. As a primer, I found Chapter 1 with design examples in "Soil Dynamics, Deep Stabilization, and Special Geotechnical Construction - Design Manual, NAVFAC DM-7.3" interesting and straightforward.

Regarding the softwares suggested, I do not have access to SAP2000 or ROBOT. We have STAADIII, which may might do the job. One of the first things I have to do is to get dynamic properties from a geotechnical company and also establish design criteria from the equipment manufacturer and customer.

Again, thanks for your help.

Victor Lee
