DEAR SIR
What i meant is over stressing of soil.
You might have read it in papers about SHANGHAI
sinking.Our people donot buy TOTAL STATION @RS 7 LAKS
TO MAKE SUCH OBSERVATIONS.
IF STILL YU HAD TO DO IT ,ONE GO FOR DEEP PILES UP 2
MTR HARD ROCK SOCKETTING 2] GO FOR SINGLE FOOTING
&DOUBLE COLUMN JUNCTION. ON SLAB USE WATER BAR 230 MM
IN CONSTRUCTION JOINTS.
At coluns-gap of 25 to 50 mm [between twin columns on
same foundations use bitumen or mastic pad]
iIf the client is still rich ,go for raker or
inclinedpiles and test them for horizontal strain as
per ASTM STANDARDS.
STILL IF THE STRUCTURE IS IMPORTANT GO FOR WELL OR
MONOLITH FOUNDATIONS.
See options are plenty.Moneyand time matters.Sure
lives are also important.
bye

[quote]Dear Mr. Surya,

After writing in your reply, last night, I had
thought over it again on what could be a possible
reason for you to be annoyed by my e-mail and yes I
did get a clue.

I wrote:
If a client insists on getting a joint free
structure, for any purpose, (which otherwise would
have required one or more expansion joints as per
the common practice) AND he is ready to pay for it,
is there any lack of or restriction in, our
"knowledge" of designing such structure? Or the
CODES, for any logical reasons, forbid us to do
this?

You probably thought that I was talking of the
client paying (any amount) to me for designing any
such structure that is otherwise not permitted by
the common practice and the codes. In other words,
the client is bribing me for some unethical or
immoral act.

And what I meant was (as should be clear to probably
everyone) that the client is ready to spend any
money on his structure (of his choice). Because, of
course if you want something more than the normal
(like in this case, the structure will be designed
for the temperature stresses and they can be
tremendous, at times) you need to put in more money.

Anyway, if this is not what you understood out of
me, then blame it on English language:)) Wish we
could talk in our mother tongues on internet! But
then probably we could not even fight as I assume
that yours is not Hindi:))

Sincerely,

M.K.Mishra
