HOW TO CALCULATE FOOTING SOIL BEARING BY COMPUTER

A computer routine is described which provides an effective method for finding the maximum soil bearing under eccentrically loaded rectangular footings. The routine is based on a program developed for solving biaxial eccentricity problems in reinforced concrete, with modifications for title headings and data in the printed results. The flow-chart for the logic pattern used in formulating the program is presented. Examples of its application are described. The mechanics for determining the maximum soil bearing under a footing are reviewed, as well as design practice. Biaxial eccentricity and stability are also discussed.
