Components of Well Foundations and their Functions Well Ste Well Steini ining ng Well steining is the main body of a well.

It is made with tapering side inside the well and the taper angle is around 60 degrees with the hori orizontal plane. Som Sometimes the curb is lined with steel plate through out its height insid side and outside to protect from damages due to boulders if any. Its top diameter(outer) is kept 5 to 15 cm higher than the outer dia. of the well steining to facilit facilitate ate sinking. sinking.

Design of Well Foundation
Design of well foundation is carried out in the following steps. steps. 1.
Determine the depth of well foundation
Determine the shape and size of well foundation
Check the stability of well foundation Check stability at elastic state Check stability at at ul ultimate st state
Perform structural design of well foundation Design well cap Design well steining Design well curb Design of bottom plug
Depth of Well Foundation
Shape and Size of Well Well Foundations Foundations
Shape and size of well depends on the size of substructure ,load and type of soil. Elongated shapes are used for long piers and abutments. Size of well is determined considering safe bearing capacity of soil at the founding level of well. The size of the dredge hole shall not be less than 2 m to facilitate dredging . Top diameter(outer) of curb should be higher than the outer diameter of the well steining to facilitate facilitate sinking. Usually curb offset offset is taken in the range of 50 to 150 mm Thickness of steining steining should be sufficient so that well can be sunk by its self weight . Minimum thickness of steining shall be 500 mm. Circular wells are most preferred because they are relatively strong, simple in construction , easy in sinking. Circular wells are not suitable for wide roads with wide substructures. Double D and rectangular types are commonly used wells after circular wells.
