RE: Modeling Spread Footings for buildings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is an incidental upward bearing pressure to be added to the tie
beam. The simplest approach is to match the pressure to that of the
spread footing. Has anyone explored a lesser bearing pressure for the
tie beam if the spread footing is substantially deeper than the tie
beam?
