RE: Uplift resistance

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Seth,

Look at the suggestions presented by John Russ, and also consider adding
a greater dead load to the isolated locations by omitting a column and
using a transfer girder.  This may require some iterative modifications,
but is similar to providing a minimum dead load as required with
construction in expansive clays.  Just my thoughts.

Subject: Uplift resistance

I'm working on a steel building which has uplift forces in the order of 
50-170 kips in isolated locations.  The foundation design is spread
footings.

Any suggestions?  Do I have to go to piles to accomplish this?

Thanks,
