Assigning dimensions of the footing of eccentrically loaded foundations

  • 23 Accesses


A procedure is suggested for determining the minimum dimensions for the footing of eccentrically loaded foundations with different shapes in plan, by graphoanalytic means. It is based on the functional relationship of static and structural parameters (vertical forces, moments of forces, shape of the foundations' footing, etc.), expressed in relative amounts, and can take into account the action of several combinations of loads in the calculation. The procedure is most effective in solving problems connected with designing the foundations of buildings (structures) to be reconstructed.
