Abstract [en]

Because of the transition to a common standard for building regulations in Europe called Eurocodes, there is a need to update old reports that was written when old national standards were in use.

A pile foundation is needed if the ground beneath a building does not have enough loadbearing capacity. The function of the pile cap is to distribute the load from the above construction on to the piles in the ground. The goal of this thesis is to create design tables with a number of type caps that can be use to quickly get a grip of the size, quantity of reinforcement steel and loadbearing capacity of the cap without the need to do any calculations.

To create the values for the design tables the cantilever truss model was used. The truss is made up of the strut between the pile head-compression zone under the wall/pillar and the tie that is the reinforcement steel. The choice of this model makes it relatively simple to calculate the height and loadbearing capacity for the cap.The model from the theory part of the thesis is further explained by a calculation example that shows how the model has been implemented to create the design tables.

The work with this thesis has been carried out at WSP and has it’s grounds in an handbook that they have there.
