# Structural Design of Mat

Foundation
Conventional Rigid Method:
Step1: Calculate the total column load

## Step2: Determine the pressure on the soil (q)

below the mat at point A, B, Cby using the
equation

## Step 3: Compare the values of the soil

pressures determine in step 2 with the net
allowable soil pressure to check if q<qall(net)
Step 4: Divide the mat into several strips in X
and Y direction. Let the width of any strip be
B1.
Step 5: Draw the shear and moment diagrams
for each individual strip in X and Y direction.

## Step 6: determine depth of the mat d. This can

be done by checking for diagonal tension
shear near various column. According to ACI
Code 318-95(section 11.122.1c). For critical
section

## Step 7: from the moment diagrams of all strips

in a given direction (that is X or Y), obtain the
maximum positive and negative moments per
unit width M=M/B1
