|Example 1: Design of a square footing for different codes
Description of the problem
An example is carried out to design a spread footing
according to EC 2, DIN 1045, ACI and ECP codes.
A square footing of 0.5 [m] thickness has dimensions of 2.6
[m] * 2.6 [m] is chosen. The footing is support to a column of 0.4 [m] * 0.4 [m],
reinforced by 8Φ16 and carries a load of 1276 [kN]. The footing rests on Winkler springs have modulus
of subgrade reaction of ks
= 40000 [kN/m3].
A thin plain concrete of thickness 0.15 [m] is chosen under the footing and
is not considered in any calculation.
