oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - A systematic approach to the design and construction of single-storey residential masonry structures on problem soils : technical paper

Volume 34, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0009-7845



A site classification system relating differential movement of problem soil horizons in non-dolomitic areas to foundation design and building procedures for single-storey residential structures of masonry construction is presented. Serviceability criteria as well as a systematic approach to the implementation of the technology described are formulated.

'n Klassifiseringstelsel wat die verband tussen diffensiele bewegings van probleemgrond in nie-dolomitiese gebiede en fondamentontwerp en bouprosedures ten opsigte van enkelverdieping-woningstrukture uit messelwerkkonstruksie daarstel, word beskryf. Diensbaarheidskriteria asook 'n stelselmatige benadering tot die implementering van die tegnologie wat beskryf is, word geformuleer.
