This presentation covers following topics
1) What is foundation?
2) Types of foundations along with brief overview of each of them which include

a) Shallow Foundation which is further classified into

i. Spread Footing
ii. Raft Foundation
iii. Compensated Foundation

b) Deep Foundation which is further classified into

i. Pile Foundation
ii. Caissons Foundation

3) Design Procedure of foundations
Step-1: Given Data
Factored load on column Pu in ‘KN’
Size of column, l x b in ‘mm’
SBC of Soil in KN/sq.m
Self weight of footing = 10% of Pu

Step-2:
Area of footing = Total Load/S.B.C
Provide a suitable size of footing L x B

Step-3:
Net upward pressure intensity,
Pu/area of footing.

Step-4:
Design for flexureCritical section occurs at the face of column l = (L – l)/2
Mutr =wl2/2

Step-5:
Depth of footing
d = [(Mu/(2.76×1000)) ]1/2

Step-6:
Calculation of area of steel,
Mu = 0.87fyAst(d-0.42xu)

Step-7:
Check for One-way shearCritical shear force occurs at a distance of‘d’ from face of the column
Nominal shear stress, Tu = v/bd for 0.15% of steel from IS456:2000, Table-19 Permissible shear stress
If Tc>Tv footing is safe in shear.

    what is active earthpressure and passive earth pressure?

    • S V GANGARAJU July 24, 2013 at 11:17 pm

      When the back fill moves towards retaining wall the pressure generated is called active earth pressure. similarly when the backfill moves away from the retaining wall the pressure generated is Passive earth pressure.
