Abstract

A simple and approximate theory to obtain the settlement and tilt of footings subjected to eccentric loading is described. Comparison with test data on a plate and one of the existing procedures for specific site conditions demonstrate the feasibility of the technique. It is concluded that when footings are subjected to vertical loads and moments, as during a seismic event, the proposed method can be employed with advantage.

Settlement and Tilt of Footings Under Eccentric Loads

St. Louis, Missouri

A simple and approximate theory to obtain the settlement and tilt of footings subjected to eccentric loading is described. Comparison with test data on a plate and one of the existing procedures for specific site conditions demonstrate the feasibility of the technique. It is concluded that when footings are subjected to vertical loads and moments, as during a seismic event, the proposed method can be employed with advantage.
