Basics of Frost Protected Shallow Foundation Design

Andrew J. Bibb, PE

Shallow Frost Protected Foundations are a cost effective alternative to conventional spread footings constructed below the frost line of the locality. This course will review the theory and the ASCE Standard (ASCE 32) adopted by reference into the IBC code for this type of foundation. The Revised Builder's Guide to Frost Protected Shallow Foundations published by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development includes much of ASCE 32 and will be used as a companion document to the course notes. The course covers typical construction details and includes worked out examples showing how to put ASCE 32 into use.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
