The Design Procedure.1. Determine the structural loads and member sizes at the foundation level;2. Collect all the geotechnical data; set the proposed footings on the geotechnical profile;3. Determine the depth and location of all foundation elements,4. Determine the bearing capacity,5. Determine possible total and differential settlements; check effects at 2B depths;6. Select the concrete strength (and possibly the mix),7. Select the steel grade,8. Determine the required footing dimensions,9. Determine the footing thickness, T (or D in some textbooks),10. Determine the size, number and spacing of the reinforcing bars,11. Design the connection between the superstructure and the foundation, and12. Check uplift and stability against sliding and overturning of the structure-soil system.The first studies performed on foundation structural failures were done by Professor Talbot atthe University of Illinois in 1913. Advances in the next 50 years include Prof. F.E. Richart’stests at the University of Michigan. His results were synthesized into the methodology usedtoday by a committee sponsored by the ACI and ASCE and published in 1962.Spread footings is still the most popular foundation around the world because they are moreeconomical than piles, adding weight to them does not affect any other member, and theirperformance has been excellent.

Selection of materials.Spread footings are usually designed to use 3 ksi f'c 4 ksi, whereas modern structuralmembers frequently use concrete between the range of 4 ksi f'c 8 ksi. A higher concretestrength helps reduction the member’s size. However, the footing’s design is govern by thebearing capacity and settlement. That means that the strength of the soil might be limitingfactor, and a higher concrete strength would not be relevant.Where a footing must carry a load greater than 500 kips, an f'c 5 ksi might be justified.Since flexural stresses are usually small, a grade 40 steel would usually be adequate, althoughit is currently unavailable in the US. The most common grade used for construction is Grade60 steel, which is almost universally used in the world today.

The typical details of a spread footing, as sketched for drafting. The standard thicknesses T aregiven in English Units as multiples of 3": 12", 15", 18"., etc. A high precision in specifyingthe depth of excavation Df is unnecessary. ACI code specifies that at least 3 inches of concretecover must be included from ground contact, which takes into consideration irregularities in theexcavation and corrosion factors.

The same footing as built. Note that forming is required in this site due to the presence of a cleangravelly sand, that would not stand vertically at the sides of the excavation.

Design Criteria.1) The qall and Q control the footing dimensions B x L (footing area A);2) The designer controls the depth Df (embedment of the foundation);3) Shear (v) controls the footing’s thickness T (d 3” the diameter of rebars)a) Diagonal tension (punching shear) for square footings, andb) Wide beam shear for rectangular footings (that is, when L / B 1.2).

Analysis.The analysis of a square or rectangular footing may first be performed by assuming there is nosteel in the member. The depth d from the top of the footing to the tension axis is,S Fy 0Qu 2d vc (b d) 2d vc (c d) (c d)(b d) qo(shear on 4 faces)(bottom face)Set Qu BL qo d2(4 vc qo) d (2 vc qo)(b c) - (BL - cb) qo 0For the special case of a square column, where c b w,d2 (vc qo/4) d (vc qo/2)w - (B2 - w2) qo/4 0For the case of a round column, with a diameter,d2 (vc qo/4) d (vc qo/2) a - ( BL - Acol ) qo/4 0

Design Steps.Step 1. Compute the footing area via B x L,for a square footing BxB SQRT(Q / qall)for a rectangular footing BxL Q / qallwhere Q is the critical load combination (not Qu).Step 2.

Compute the shear in the concrete vc.Case (a) for a square footing, check for diagonal tension (punching shear),vall 4 SQRT (f'c) where 0.85 for shear.For example, for f'c 3000 psi, vall 186 psi

Case (b) for a rectangular footing, check for wide beam shear,vall 2 SQRT(f'c)where 0.85 for shear.For example, for f'c 3000 psi, vall 93.1 psiStep 4. Find the effective footing depth d.(Note that use of d via this method eliminates the need to use steel for shear, whichis used only for flexure. Use the appropriate equation from the Analysis Section.Step 5.

Example #3.Design continuous wall footing for a warehouse building, given DL 3 k/ft, LL 1.2 k/ft, theqall 2 ksf (with FS 2), ?soil 110 pcf, and f'c 3000 psi, fy 60 ksi, ?concrete 150 pcf.Step 1. Assume a footing thickness D 1 ft.By ACI 7.7.3.1, the minimum coverIn soils is 3”. Also assume using#4 bars ( 1/2") d 12" - 3" - 0.5"/2 8.75“

Continuous, or strip, or wall footings, are reinforced transversely to the direction of the wall.The footing acts, in essence, as two small cantilever beams projecting out from under the walland perpendicular to it, in both directions. The reinforcement is placed at the bottom, where thestresses are in tension (flexure). Although the main reinforcement is transverse to the axis ofthe wall, there is also a requirement for longitudinal reinforcement to control temperatureshrinkage and concrete creep.
