Discussed here is the state-of-the-art design of machine foundations and the principles of soil engineering, soil dynamics and theory of vibrations. Complete and comprehensive treatment of design methods for different types of machines are described including reciprocating machines, impact machines and rotary machines. Embedded foundations and foundations on piles are also covered, along with step-by-step design procedures and several solved examples. Two main methods of analysis, Elastic Half Space and Linear Spring are described in detail, and material is provided on wave propagation for determining dynamic soil properties - essential to the safe design of machine foundations. The chapter on vibrations should prove helpful to the reader in understanding the dynamic nature of the problem. This book presents a systematic, concise and thorough discussion of the subject, complete with solved examples, bibliography and concluding commentary.
