🕑 Reading time: 1 minuteReinforced concrete footing are designed based on column loads and moments at base and the soil data. This article shed light on the design of reinforced concrete footing. Reinforced concrete footing types Following are the types of foundations in order of preference with a view to economy: Individual footings (isolated footing) […]
🕑 Reading time: 1 minute Textile-reinforced concrete (TRC) or fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) is a composite concrete material that employs textile reinforcement instead of steel reinforcement. TRC is being widely used in construction for the past two decades and is a promising solution for retrofitting and strengthening concrete structures. Figure-1: Textile Reinforcement in Concrete The […]
The spread footing behaves like an inverted cantilever with loads applied in the upward direction. As a rule, a spread footing is a quite rigid element therefore, the applied soil stresses are almost linear and in case of a symmetric (with respect to the pedestal) footing, they are orthogonal.
Prefabrication is the method of construction which includes assembling components of a structure in a manufacturing or production site, transporting complete assemblies or partial assemblies to the site where the structure is to be located. It i
