Foundation Engineering

M+EG has been involved in the design of shallow and deep foundations, embankments, walls and slopes under static and dynamic loads.  M+EG has knowledge and experience in the application of the geotechnical recommendations and guidelines provided in the BCBC 2012, NBCC-2010/2014, CAN/CSA-S6-06/14, ASCE-7-05/10, AASHTO LRFD 2012/2014(Interim), Eurocode 7 and 8, and AREMA.  M+EG’s technical staff has extensive knowledge and experience in the use of most of the state of practice software for the geotechnical design of foundations, slopes and all types of piling, including the specialized programs:
  • FLAC, for the non-linear evaluation of geotechnical systems considering water flow for static and dynamic loads,
  • DYNA5 for the evaluation of soil-structure interaction under dynamic loads and design of vibratory machine foundations, and
  • SASSI for soil-structure interaction evaluation of complex systems.
