Footing Design Sheet Based on ACI 318-14


The footings are so designed and proportioned that the C.G. of the superimposed load coincides with the C.G. of the base area, so that the footing is subjected to concentric loading, resulting in uniform bearing pressure. However, in some cases, it may not be possible to do so. For example, if the wall (or column) under construction is near some other property, it will not be possible to spread the footing to both the sides of the wall or column.
