Abstract [en]

Pile foundation is one of the most common foundation methods. A pile cap is the structure

designed to bring down the applied load from the structure to the piles. This thesis is

about pile caps and how it is designed in accordance with Eurocode. Eurocode is the

collective name of standards for design of structures. It is designed for international

cooperation among EU countries and have now replaced the old Swedish building code.

Through studies of Eurocode 2 a Mathcad program has been created that made it

possible to obtain, the basic geometry and reinforcement requirements for common types

of pile caps. With help of the program new tables have been composed, to replace the

older tables (Westerberg, 1985 [8]) that are made in accordance with Boverkets byggregler

(BBK).

In this thesis, the pile caps have been designed using the strut-and-tie model. This

theory has been used for the design with both Eurocode and BBK. To get a deeper

understanding of the differences between the two standards, an analysis had been done

and various design rules had been compared. For example, the main reinforcement, crack

width, crack reinforcement, anchorage length and compression struts.

Based on the results of this report, it shows that Eurocode has a control of nodal

points that did not exist in BBK. The control of the nodal points is in almost all cases,

the weakest part of the structure and set the limit for the foundations.
