Introduction is underpinning of underpinning and disadvantages is underpinning required

construction industry over the years has faced many problems right from the time of its inception problems related to the construction can be classified under two major categories i.e. i) superstructure.
ii) substructure. underpinning of structuresstructures underpinning of
techniques have been developed in order to deal with these types of problems by the engineers but the feedback obtained from the engineers is the problems related to superstructure can be solved and rectified much easily as compared to the substructure

What is underpinning ????????The
word underpinning is used in foundation engineering to denote the process of transferring the weight of an existing structure from its original foundation to temporary supports and from them to a new permanent substructure.
may also denote the construction of new foundation under the structureunderpinning of structures intermediate without the 4/16/12 55
the work is completed, the structure is said to be underpinned. may be necessitated occasionally by the inadequacy of original foundations or by their harmful settlements.
most cases, however, it is caused by the fact that the new work in the immediate vicinity of the structure or even in the building itself, 4/16/12 underpinning of structures 66
underpinning requires a knowledge of the state of balance of a building, its foundation and of the ground conditions. of load transfer need to be fully investigated within any structure to be underpinned.
will help us in knowing the probable concentrations of stress the 4/16/12 underpinning of structures 77 building is subjected to.
Why underpinning ????Some of the construction modifications and
Likely to make underpinning of existing Structures necessary are the following.Provision
of a basement in a building that had none before. of tunnels , sewers under or near columns or walls. tanks, wells 88

Increase of loads on columns or walls that requires replacement of present foundations. The construction of deep foundations in positions that endanger present ones.

General PrinciplesThe process of underpinning involves great care and patience as conditions are likely to differ for every job and every job is special in its own way. The load has to taken off the existing footing and held by temporary means while a new support is provided. The load is then has to be 4/16/12 underpinning of structures 10 transferred to the new bearing.
is important to do all this in a manner that does not require or produce raising or lowering of the structure sufficiently to cause cracking or other harm to it. are several means to achieve the above mentioned objective but the common ones are use of wedges and screw jacks, hydraulic jacks etc.underpinning of structures 11
Methods Of UnderpinningSeveral methods used for underpinning are as Follows:Conventional Micro Angle

Conventional Concrete Underpinning Conventional
concrete underpinning is accomplished from small, sheeted and braced pits constructed beneath the foundationunderpinning of structures 14
Traditional Underpinning This
method stabilizes existing wall foundations by digging under the present foundation in sequenced bays to a depth where firm strata exists and replacing the excavated material with mass concrete. loading capabilities are based upon the strata encountered.underpinning of structures 15
some circumstances when the existing footing is adequate to span between supports, intermediate piers can be used to reduce cost, i.e miss out piers 2 and 4 as shown on the diagram below.
suitable bearing stratum is assessed by the Supervising Officer or Building Inspector upon completion of thestructures sequence of 4/16/12 underpinning of first 16
Underpinning is usually applied when the existing foundations are at shallow depth. are excavated generally 1.0m 1.2m in length, 0.6m wide, and up to 2.5m from ground level. However a mini-piled solution would be more economical over depths of 1.5m.underpinning of structures 17

Needle Beam MethodThis
method stabilises existing wall foundations by the use of piles installed either side of the wall. A small pocket is broken out below the ground level and a reinforced concrete needle beam is cast in-situ connecting the piles and supporting the walls.

Needle beam underpinning of structures method
Piled R.C. RaftThis
method stabilizes existing wall foundations to whole rooms. Mini-piles are installed within the property and capped with an integral reinforced concrete raft. Needle beams project from the slab into to the walls below ground level.
