Wow.  Thanks for the reference, Joe.  I have the book, but had never read that chapter.  I have a need for it it this week for a sign base with overturning base.  Very good chapter.

Hope that helps,

I have a situation where a square footing can be loaded at 45 degrees to the
axis.  I was just sitting down to work out the equation to calculate the
footing pressure when the resultant is just outside of the kern.  At first
glance it looked like the algebra was going to take a bit of time.  I don't
have a reference that provides this.  I certainly can do it, just thought I
would ask if there is a reference someone can give or possibly a copy of
pages from a reference or if they just have the equations handy.  It would
save me some time this week.  Of course the way work is nowadays, I can't
really say I don't have the time.
