Abstract:

The technical issues described in the paper concern aspects of foundations of buried flexible steel structures. The foundations of these structures are most frequently made as traditional “rigid” structures (which is related to their massiveness - most commonly reinforced concrete), or in the form of properly profiled soil foundations (depending on the shape of the coating). Comparison of the two issues of “vulnerability”, i.e. the bearing structure and the ’’rigidity” of foundations, is the main motivation to carry out testing and conduct an analysis in this area. The problems are discussed in the paper in the context of new developments in the field of “flexible” foundations of the structures in question. Further development analyses are currently in progress , which will be practically implemented in the form of appropriate guidelines. In the authors' opinion, this will help to optimize the design of the in which the foundation of these structures.
