Abstract:

 \;

The 5th edition of the Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual represents a si gnificant update to previous editions of the Manual in many different ways . It contains significant expansion to some chapters\, the consolidation o f several chapters (for example\, those on shallow and deep foundations)\, and the inclusion of new chapters on Geology\, permafrost physiography \, and climate change in Canada\, Settlement and deformation\, Foundations in permafrost\, Ground vibrations\, and Geote chnical instrumentation and monitoring. The 5th edition dep arts from previous publications in that it is entirely digital in its prod uction and sales. There will be no printed copies produced\, so no trees w ill be destroyed. This digital publication format was also selected for it s flexibility\, to allow for timelier updates.

 \;

CFEM 5th Edition (2023) is also significantly increas ed in size. Previous editions were limited to some practical length govern ed in part by printing and distribution costs. Because this edition of the manual is digital only\, length is not as much of a determining factor an d as a result\, some of the previous shorter chapters have been expanded.& nbsp\; \; This manual provides information and guidance on geotechnica l aspects of foundation engineering\, as practiced in Canada\, so that the user will more readily be able to interpret the intent and performance re quirements of the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC\, 2020) and the C anadian Highway Bridge Design Code\, CSA S6:19\, Section 6 Foundations and Geotechnical Systems. This manual also provides additional material on ma tters not covered by these codes.

This presentation will begin by briefly describing previous editions of the Manual and give due recognition to those involved in the p reparation and release of the 5th edition. The focus will then shift to what’\;s new\, including new chapters\, expansion to some ch apters\, resequencing of chapters and consolidation of some chapters.  \; The main differences between the 5th and previous editions w ill be highlighted followed by interactive examples of main features inclu ding hyperlinks\, search routines\, viewing text and figures\, making use of PDF editing tools\, and ordering. \; The presentation will end with a brief discussion of ongoing initiatives including errata\, the French e dition\, and preparation for future updates.
