Types Grillage Foundation is a type of foundation often used at the base of a column. It consists of one, two or more tiers of steel beams superimposed on a layer of concrete, adjacent tiers being placed at right angles to each other, while all tiers are encased in concrete. It is the most economical foundation in case of transferring heavy loads from columns to soil of low bearing capacity. Please Note that the word tier is used for such an arrangement in which items are placed in layers one above the other like the seats that are placed in a cinema or auditorium.

The grillage foundation helps in distributing the load over a wider area of the subsoil. This foundation helps in avoiding deep excavations as the necessary base area is provided for the load of the transmission. The depth of foundation is limited from 1m to 1. Grillage Foundation definition — The grillage foundation consists of two or more tiers of beams laid at right angles to distribute the load over a large area. This type of foundation is generally used for heavy structure columns piers and stanchions.

Grillage consists of steel I I section R. J laid in single or double large. The second larger. The number of R. To construct a grillage foundation, a trench of the required width and depth is excavated.

The surface the trench is leveled and rammed. Over the rammed surface, a layer of cement concrete is spread and is well compacted so as to make if impervious. S are of desired dimension that are laid at regular intervals. The lower flanges of the R. S are embedded into the concrete by pouring rich cement mortar the R.

S are connected together by pipes and bolts. The bolts are driven into web of the R. S, and a long bolt is pass through all the holes and pipes. This will connect the R. S together thereby forming a rigid mass. Grillage Foundation Types 1. Steel Grillage Foundation Steel Grillage Foundation is the construct of steel beams, structurally known as rolled steel joists RSJ , provided in two or more tiers. Timber Grillage Foundation Timber grillage is provided for heavy load wood column or masonry wall.

Grillage foundation images Foundation — bending and shear diagrams. Foundation of Grillage — temporary works Grillage Foundations Advantages Steel grillage foundation gives more advantages for contractors than wooden grillage.

The speed of Installation — Contractors can save time using a foundation of grillage. Convenience — grillage foundation uses to avoid poured concrete and saves time with easy installation. Costs effective method — Contractor can reduce cost through minimal disruption of transport infrastructure. Versatile foundation solution — the technology suits many different applications.

Grillage Footing

Cast-in-situ piles. Shallow Foundations or Spread Foundations:- Spread foundations are used when the soil has sufficient strength within a short depth below the ground level. Shallow foundations need enough area to transfer the heavy loads to the base soil. As mentioned above, we chose shallow foundations when the soil has adequate Soil bearing capacity. Footings in Shallow foundations may be of Masonry, Plain concrete or reinforced concrete.


Grillage Foundation

It is used at the base of columns. These tiers are encased in concrete and are at right angles to each other. This type of foundation is generally used for heavy structure columns piers and scaffolds. Though both foundation and grillage look the same they are different. Where foundation transfers load from the structure to the ground, grillage disperses heavy loads over large areas. Types of Grillage Foundation According to the materials used in construction, Grillage foundation is of two types: Steel Grillage foundation Timber Grillage Foundation Steel Grillage Foundation Steel Grillage foundation consists of steel joints or beams which are provided in single or double tiers.
