Developed a design soil/rock analytical profile
Design 23 meter deep excavation support system
Raft foundation analysis
Oweis Engineering Inc. (OEI) was retainied by Thornton-Tomasetti Engineers (TTE) to provide geotechnical evaluation for the proposed construction of the foundation for 6 towers and 5 below grade levels of parking garages, supported by a 2m thick raft foundation having a footprint of approximately 41.600 square meters. OEI Services included:
Developed a design soil/rock analytical profile.
Design of a 23m deep excavation support system consisting of slurry walls supported by berms and struts, or tiebacks and recommendations of excavation strategy for cost saving.
Analyze raft foundation interaction by conducting extensive 3-D non-linear finite element analysis following construction sequences and considering slurry walls, raft foundation and 796 column loads.
Developed construction specifications.
