Solution:
QUESTION: 7

In the case of isolated square concrete footing, match the locations at which the stress resultants are to be checked, where d is effective depth of footing and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists:
Stress Resultant
A. Bending moment
B. One way shear
C. Punching shear
Location
1. At face of column
2. At d/2 from face of column
3. At d from face of column

Solution:

For footings on piles the critical section for one way shear is d/2 from the face of the wall.
