Soils and Geology Procedures for Foundation Design of Buildings and Other Structures
Foundation design differs considerably from design of other elements of a structure because of the interaction between the structure and the supporting medium (soil and/or rock). This course presents guidance for selecting and designing foundations and associated features for buildings, retaining structures, and machinery.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty (30) questions to earn 5 PDH credits.
