CHOOSING PLAN DIMENSIONS FOR AN ECCENTRICALLY LOADED FOOTING SLAB

IN AN ECCENTRICALLY LOADED FOOTING, VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF BREADTH AND LENGTH OFFER THEMSELVES AS SOLUTIONS TO THE FOUNDATION PROBLEM WITHIN THE GROUND PRESSURES ALLOWED. THE NORMAL DESIGN ARRANGEMENT IS CONSIDERED WHEREBY THE EQUIVALENT SINGLY ECCENTRIC LOAD FALLS WITHIN THE MIDDLE THIRD, TOGETHER WITH THE CASE WHERE IT FALLS OUTSIDE THIS REGION. A LOGICAL APPROACH TO THE CHOICE IS SUGGESTED BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT, WHERE POSSIBLE, AN ENGINEER WILL PREFER A SQUARE FOOTING TO ONE THAT IS LONG AND NARROW. /AUTHOR/
