Figure 1.

D = 3.00 m footing embedment depth
g = 18.0 kN/m³ soil density
Ø = 0 deg angle of internal friction
c = 40 kPa cohesion of soil
B = 2.0 m footing size

Footing Type: strip

Since:
Ø = 0 deg
Therefore from Table 4-2: From Table 4-1
Nc = 5.7 sc = 1.3
Nq = 1 sγ = 0.8
Nγ = 0.0

q = 54 =D*g

qult = ( 350.4 + 0.00 B ) kPa
qult = 350.4 kPa
qa = qult

and with such a large load involved this in cetainly not the location to be excessively conservative. and the actual soil pressure qact is also large. qa = 794 kPa The actual soil pressure is: qact = 750 kPa * Note : Note that the allowable pressure qa is very large. . Some geotechnical consultants routenly limit the pressure to around 500 kPa in recommendations to clients for design wheter settlement is a factor or not. Small footings with large column loads confidence-inspiring during construction.
