This chapter focuses on the current understanding of soil-structure interaction effects on thermo-active foundations that occur due to their thermal expansion and contraction during heating and cooling, respectively. The first section of the chapter presents hypothetical representations of thermo-mechanical stress profiles in thermo-active foundations, along with the theoretical relationships between axial stress, axial strain, side shear stress, and axial displacement. The second section of the chapter presents relevant design criteria for the axial stress and displacement in thermo-active foundations. The third section of the chapter presents the details of thermo-mechanical load transfer analyses that can be used to predict the...
