About these proceedings

Introduction

The book presents some advances in the analysis and design of deep foundations. It contains 21 technical papers covering various aspects of analysis and design of deep foundations based on full-scale field testing, numerical modeling and analytical solutions. They present results and findings from research as well as practical-oriented studies on deep foundations that are of interest to civil/geotechnical engineering community. The topics cover a wide spectrum of applications that include evaluation of the axial and lateral capacity of piles, pile group effects, evaluation of the increase in pile capacity with time (or pile setup), influence of excavation on pile capacity, study the behavior of pile raft caisson foundations, evaluation of the bearing capacity and settlement of piles from cone penetration tests, etc. The volume is based on the best contributions to the 2nd GeoMEast International Congress and Exhibition on Sustainable Civil Infrastructures, Egypt 2018 – The official international congress of the Soil-Structure Interaction Group in Egypt (SSIGE).

Dr. Abdel-Rahman got his Bachelor degree from Faculty of Civil Engineering - “Ain-Shams University” – Cairo – EGYPT in 1986. Afterwards he went to Germany at “University of Hannover”, where he got a master degree with "Distinction" in “Geotechnique and Infrastructure Engineering” . His PhD study under the excellent supervision of “Prof. Achim Hettler” at University of Dortmund - Germany was completed in 1999 with innovative results related to the “Numerical Investigation of Scale Effect by Earth Pressure Problems”. After getting his Ph.D., he joined the team at Institute for Geotechnical Engineering at “Leibniz University of Hannover” as Senior Lecturer then he was nominated by the head of the department “Prof. Martin Achmus” to be his “Oberingenieur”-“Deputy Head”.
 During his academic career, he published with the team in his department “Institute for Geotechnical Engineering (IGtH) more than 60 publications mainly in the Numerical Modeling of Foundations Systems for Wind Energy Plants (Onshore & Offshore) and supervised more that 80 Bachelor and Master theses.
Different conference publications have been awarded “Best Conference Paper Award” e.g. “K. Abdel-Rahman & M. Achmus „ Behaviour of Monopile and Suction Bucket Foundation Systems for Offshore Wind Energy Plants” in 2006. Last but not least, winning in 2016 “Outstanding Paper Award” from the international journal “Computers and Geotechnics” for a paper with “Prof. Martin Achmus” et al. titled “Behaviour of Monopile Foundations under Cyclic Lateral Loading”. 

Dr. Bengt H. Fellenius is a professional engineer specializing in foundation design and studies by participation in project teams, special investigations, instrumented field tests, etc. Services are also provided in regard to construction problems, claims, and litigation in collaboration with Consultants and Contractors, as well as Owners. Dr. Fellenius, Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Ottawa from 1979 through 1998, is an internationally recognized authority in the field of soil mechanics and foundation engineering, and, in particular, in deep foundations. He has gained a wealth of practical experience during more than 50 years of work at home and overseas through a variety of assignments that encompass foundation, embankment, and soil improvement design for water and sewage treatment plants, industrial plants, as well as bridges, highway, and airport projects, and marine structures and urban area development projects; some of which he has written up in 300+ technical journal and conference papers, articles, books, and book chapters. Copies of many of the papers are available for downloading from Dr. Fellenius' web site: [www.Fellenius.net] Dr. Fellenius moved from his native Sweden to Canada in 1972 where he worked on foundation investigations and design and construction projects in North America and overseas. In 1973, he was one of the first to apply geotextile soil separation sheets to stabilize roadbeds and construction surfaces, investigating conventional carpet underlay (Celanese) for this purpose. He was active in promoting to the US market the splicing of prestressed concrete piles by means of mechanical full-strength splices, and he introduced to Canada and the USA ground improvement applications of lime column method for reducing soil compressibility and wick drains (the Geodrain and Alidrain) for accelerating consolidation and stabilizing landslides. He was one of the earliest (1977) to research and use dynamic testing and the Pile Driving Analyzer in actual project design and construction. In 1984 he introduced the Janbu method of determining soil compressibility and analysis of settlement. He has also had a fundamental part of the development of commercial software for analysis of settlement from loads on natural soils and soils subjected to soil improvement methods, design of piled foundations, and other software. In 1984, he published the design and analysis method for foundation design known as the “Unified Method of Design for Capacity, Drag Force, Settlement, and Downdrag”. Dr. Fellenius is and has been an active participant in many national and international professional societies and research associations and in Canadian and US Codes and Standards Development. For example, Member of the subcommittee for the American Society for Testing and Materials D-4945 Standard for High-Strain Dynamic Testing of Piles; Chairman of the Canadian Geotechnical Society, CGS, Technical Committee on Foundations writing the 1985 Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual; Member of the Ministry of Transportation Committee for the Development of the 1983 and 1992 Ontario Bridge Design Code; Author of three Public Works Canada publications: Marine Division Master Specifications for Piling, Pile Design Guidelines, and Hammer Selection Guide; Past Overseas Correspondent Member to the Geotechnical Engineering Advisory Panel of the Institution of Civil Engineers, ICE (London); and Past Member of Editorial Board for the ASCE Geotechnical Engineering Journal. Dr. Fellenius has given lectures and courses to several universities and been invited lecturer at international conferences throughout Europe, the Americas, and South-east Asia.

His areas of specialization include static and dynamic soil-structure interactions involving buildings, roads, water structures, retaining walls, earth reinforcement, and bridges, as well as, different disciplines of project management and contract administration. He is the author of an Arabic practical book titled “Practical Solutions for Different Geotechnical Works: The Practical Engineers’ Guidelines.” He is currently working on a new book titled “Soil-Foundation-Superstructure Interaction: Structural Integration”. He is the contributor of more than 50 publications in national and international conferences and journals. He served as a co-chair of the GeoChina 2016 International Conference in Shandong, China. He serves also as a co-chair and secretary general of the GeoMEast 2017 International Conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. 2016 Outstanding reviewer of the ASCE as selected by the Editorial Board of International Journal of Geomechanics.
