Bed strength of T-section foundation blocks under inclined loads


1. The displacements of driven blocks can be determined from a bed model characterized by a coefficient of subgrade reaction that increases linearly with depth using proportionality coefficients from [3].

2. Driven T-section blocks ensure that the computed loads are taken up at the design depth, and can be used as foundations for agricultural buildings with three-hinge frames with a span to 21 m, and a frame spacing of up to 6 m at sites with gentle relief, preferentially in regions with deep frost to 1.5 m.
