1.1 Introduction

This design is just an excerpt from my final year project Structural Analysis and Design of 35,000

Capacity Reinforced Concrete Stadium. After analysis and design of the superstructure (see figure

1.1), I realized I had a very large magnitude of axial loads and moments at the foundation.

Foundations must be designed to resist geotechnical and structural failure, and at the same time

should be economical. The ultimate bearing capacity of the supporting soil at 2.00m depth was very

good at 380 KN/m2, (gravely sand at Naze, Owerri) so shallow foundation was adopted.

However, adopting a pad footing proved very uneconomical given the large area of excavation

required (columns are spaced at 6.0m), and the depth of concrete needed to handle shear forces was

much. Raft foundation proved to be too expensive for a soil with such good bearing capacity. After

much consideration, I realized that chaining the columns continuously will do the trick, but at the

same time, I could combine the slab with upstand beams running continuously along the axis of the

column. My whole aim was to reduce the great quantity of concrete that would have been required to

control diagonal shear by using shear reinforcements (stirrups) in the beams which proved to be much

cheaper (see Figure 1.1).

Page 1

For this paper, I selected an axis from the structure in which the intermediate columns had

approximately an ultimate axial load of 3081.075 KN each while the end columns had an axial load of

1680.3 KN (see Figure 1.3).

From the symmetrical arrangement of the loads, it is quite obvious that the centroid will pass through

the middle column, hence, soil pressure can be assumed to be uniform under the whole length of the

footing.

Concrete cover = 50mm; Fy = 460 N/mm2; Fyv = 460 N/mm2; Fcu = 30 N/mm2

Dimension of all columns = (500 300 mm); Bearing Capacity = 380 KN/m2

Total Ultimate Limit State (ULS) Load = 2(1680.3) + 5(3081.075) = 18765.975 KN

Axial load conversion factor to Serviceability Limit State (SLS) = 1.45

NSLS =

Provide a 1.1 m x 36.3m x 1.1m (trial depth) base (Aprov = 39.93 m2)

Earth Pressure intensity (q) =

= 469.97 KN/m2

Bending moment on the slab is maximum at the face of the column (in this case at the face of the

upstand beams) (clause 3.11.2.2 BS 8110-1:1997)

Width of the beam = 500mm = 0.5m

Hence, Moment arm (jxx) =

. .

= 0.30 m

Assume depth of slab h = 300mm; concrete cover = 50mm and assuming that Y12mm bars will be

used at the slab;

Hence, the effective depth (d) = 300 50 (12/2) = 244mm

The design moment Mx-x =

Punching shear is also ok (perimeter falls outside the footing dimensions). Hence design is ok.
