Design Pad & Chimney Foundation

  • The purpose of the foundation is to transfer the loads from the structure to the ground without causing the ground to fail in shear or to allow excessive settlement of the structure to occur. These requirements are met by ensuring the bearing pressure below the foundation does not exceed permissible bearing pressure.
  • The purpose of this calculation is to design Pad & Chimney foundation for "A10" type lattice steel tower structure.
  • The foundation is subjected to upward, downward and horizontal forces.
  • Foundation loads will be obtained from the tower reactions multiplied by over load capacity factors. These factored loads will be used in the sizing of the foundation. However, to design steel reinforcements reactions without the OCFs will be used.
