Re: Is it frame or not

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
no you need to embed the column into a grade beam and have square pad under the column
the idea is to prevent the column from rotation
but if the soil even give up and the footing rotate is not fixed also
so you have to have big footing to prevent the column from rotation and the soil bearing from giving up

I'm trying to get by ordinary moment frame as

two column fixed at footing and the beam to column hinged

is the system considered frame or cantilever column?
