Test: Combined Footing - Question 1

### The design of rigid rectangular combined footing consist in determining the ____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 1

The design of rigid rectangular footing consists in determining the location of center of gravity of the column loads and using length and width dimension such that centroid of footing and the center of gravity of columns loads coincide.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 2

### Which of the following condition is true regarding the transfer of load from strap to soil, used in strap footing?

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 2

The strap used does not remain in contact with soil, and thus does not transfer any pressure to the soil.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 3

### If the resultant of the soil pressure coincides with the resultant of the loads, the soil is pressure is assumed to be _____

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 3

If the resultant of the soil pressure coincides with the resultant of the loads and the center of gravity of the footing, the soil pressure is assumed to be uniformly distributed.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 4

For a rectangular combined footing, x̅ is given as ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 4

For a rectangular combined footing, x̅ = L/2 and for a trapezoidal combined footing solutions lies between the limits L/3 < x̅ < L/2.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 5

The design procedure of strap footing is essentially that of _____________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 5

The designing of strap or cantilever footing is based on trial and error method, it begins with a trial value of e so that the length L1 is known. The calculations are repeated with another value of e till values of the reactions R1 and R2 calculated by both the procedure, coincide.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 6

If the independent spread footing of two columns are connected by a beam, it is called ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 6

In strap footing, two independent columns are supported by as trap or beam at the bottom.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 7

When the allowable soil is low or the building loads are heavy, the footing used is ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 7

When the allowable soil pressure is low, or the building loads are heavy, the use of spread footings would cover more than one-half of the area and it may prove more economical to use mat or raft foundation.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 8

In designing rectangular combined footing _________ should be adopted as the design value.

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 8

The maximum bending moment should be adopted as the design value for the reinforced concrete rectangular footing, which should also be checked for maximum shear and bond etc.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 9

Generally combined footing is assumed to rest on ___________

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 9

It is assumed that the combined footings are rigid and rests on a homogeneous soil, so as to give rise to a linear stress distribution on the bottom of the footing.

Test: Combined Footing - Question 10

What will be the shape of footing if a=0, is substituted in the pressure intensity equation “q2 = a. qs”?

Detailed Solution for Test: Combined Footing - Question 10

In the pressure intensity equation q2 = a. qs, if a= 0 we have a triangle with x̅ = L/3.
