Example 1: Design of a square footing for different codes

Description of the problem:

An example is carried out to design a spread footing according to EC 2, DIN 1045, ACI and ECP codes.

A square footing of 0.5 [m] thickness has dimensions of 2.6 [m] × 2.6 [m] is chosen. The footing is support to a column of 0.4 [m] × 0.4 [m], reinforced by 8Φ16 and carries a load of 1276 [kN]. The footing rests on Winkler springs have modulus of subgrade reaction of ks = 40000 [kN/m3]. A thin plain concrete of thickness 0.15 [m] is chosen under the footing and is not considered in any calculation.
