Spread Footings Under Biaxial Bending: A Complex Design Subject

By: Javier Encinas, PE | February 7, 2016 ASDIP FOUNDATION includes the design of concrete spread footings. This structural engineering software is based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. This article covers the complexities inherent to the design of spread footings when subjected to a combination of vertical loads, horizontal loads, and biaxial bending. For a simple spread footing with a vertical compression load, the resulting bearing pressure is uniform and the shear and bending can be calculated easily by hand. If the column is at the corner of a building, then biaxial moments could be transferred to the footing. [...]
