## What is rectangular combined footing?

Rectangular Combined Footing This footing is used when two columns carry equal loads.

**What is combined footing foundation?**

Combined footings are provided when distance between two columns is small and soil bearing capacity of soil is lower and their footings overlap with each other.

**When should a designer consider a rectangular or combined footing over a square footing?**

The combined footing is usually a rectangular shape so it is called rectangular combined footing. This type of combined footing usually supporting two or more columns. The combined footings are used when there is a need for an equal distribution of load to the sub-soil.

### What are the types of combined footing?

There are two types of combined footing, rectangular combined footing and trapezoidal combined footing. Following are the advantages and disadvantages of combined footing. A combined footing is required to construct two or more columns in a small area.

**What is the difference between strap footing and combined footing?**

A strap footing is simply a combined footing with two or more footings (under a column each) are joined together with a beam to form a single combined footing; whereas, a wall footing (or strip footing) is a footing like a concrete slab that spreads the load of the load bearing wall above it.

**How do you calculate combined footings?**

Design Combined Footing

- Footing has two columns.
- 300mm square column has 100kN and 500kN live and dead loads respectively.
- 400mm square column has 200kN and 800kN live and dead loads respectively.
- Spacing of columns 3m.
- fck = 30N/mm2.
- fyk = 500N/mm2.
- Assumed footing thickness 500mm.
- Allowable bearing pressure 200N/mm2.

#### Can we give square footing for rectangular column?

Whenever possible, square footings are provided so as to reduce the bending moments and shearing forces at their critical sections. Isolated footings are used in case of light column loads, when columns are not closely spaced, and in case of good homogeneous soil.

**What is the key design aspect to consider for combined footing?**

Steps for Design of Combined Footing Locate the point of application of the column loads on the footing. Proportion the footing such that the resultant of loads passes through the center of footing. Compute the area of footing such that the allowable soil pressure is not exceeded.

**What are the 3 types of foundations?**

Foundation types vary, but likely your house or home’s addition does or will have one of these three foundations: full or daylight basement, crawlspace, or concrete slab-on-grade.

## What is the main advantage of combined footing?

Advantages of Combined Footing: Combined footing can be constructed for a soil having low bearing capacity. Combined footing can transfer unequal load. This type of footing can be easily constructed even if the column is very close to the property line. Combined footing can maintain the center of gravity of the column.

**What are the advantages of combined footing?**

Advantages of Combined Footing:

- Combined footing can be constructed for a soil having low bearing capacity.
- Combined footing can transfer unequal load.
- This type of footing can be easily constructed even if the column is very close to the property line.
- Combined footing can maintain the center of gravity of the column.

**What is the difference between combined footing and cantilever footing?**

Balanced footing is different from a combined footing in the sense that a combined footing has a single footing and a balanced or cantilever footing has two separate footings which are connected by a strap beam. The strap beam transfers the loads from external footing to the main footing by means of cantilever action.

### What is rectangular footing?

Rectangular footing is provided when one of the projections of the footing is restricted or the width of the footing is restricted. Longitudinally, the footing acts as an upward loaded beam spanning between columns and cantilevering beyond.

**What are combined footings?**

Combined Footings. Whenever two or more columns in a straight line are carried on a single spread footing, it is called a combined footing. Isolated footings for each column are generally the economical.

**What is the difference between rectangular and trapezoidal combined footings?**

The rectangular combined footings are part of combined footings. They have rectangular shapes. They are supporting two or more columns. These are used when having a rectangular shape and have a carry equal loads. This a use for a when does not present an equal load. When present unequal loads then use trapezoidal combined footings.

#### How to design reinforced concrete footings?

In the design of footings, the footing assumes to rigid and resing on homogeneous soil. When the location of the center of gravity of column loads and the centroid of the footing should coincide. The maximum bending moment takes as the design value for the reinforced concrete footing and should be checked for maximum hear and bond, etc.
