CALCULATIONS OF FOUNDATION BLOCKS

(According to Andrea & Norsa Formula)

Design Data,
Maximum Bending Moment @ Ground Level, M = 62,000.00 N.m

Weight of the Structure, = 428.13 kg

Horizontal Shear, Vs = 4,200.00 N

Pole Height, H = 10.50 m

Weight of Concrete = 2,400.00 kg/m3

Allowable Soil Pressure, q = 20,000.00 kg/m2

Foundation Details,
Foundation Width, C = 0.80 m

Total Foundation Height, h = 2.20 m

Exposed Height, h1 = 0.10 m

Foundation Embedment, h2 = 2.10 m

Weight of Foundation Block = 3,379.20 kg

Total Weight at Bottom of Exacavation, N = 3,807.33 kg

Equiv. Force at Pole Top, T (T=M/H) = 5,904.76 N
