Abstract

"This investigation pertains to the stress analysis by the finite element method of a wall footing subjected to external vertical loads and external overturning moments. This problem has been reduced to a two-dimensional stress analysis problem by taking a unit length of the wall. A rectangular plate - element is used throughout this investigation. The development of the matrix equations is shown and the solution is performed by digital computer. Stresses in the horizontal direction show essentially linear variation which is in agreement with simple structural theory, while stresses in the vertical direction show severe perturbation near the column load. The σx and σy stress distributions and the deflections are shown and discussed "--Abstract, page ii.
