Strip foundations (or strip footings) are a type of shallow foundation that are used to provide a continuous, level (or sometimes stepped) strip of support to a.
Strip footings are commonly used as foundations of load-bearing walls. The footing usually has twice the width as the load bearing wall, sometimes it is even wider. The basic program for design and analysis strip footings under load-bearing wall is GEO5 Spread Footing program.
Strip foundations consist of a continuous strip, usually of concrete, formed centrally under load bearing walls. Strip footing (wall footing) is a relatively small strip of concrete placed into a trench and reinforced with steel. The strip footing foundation width is pre-determined.
Wall footings carrying direct vertical loads might be designed either in plain concrete or in reinforced concrete. Since a wall footing deflects essentially in one way, it is analyzed by considering as a strip of unit width and its length.
Different Types of Shallow Foundations. The different types of shallow foundation are: Strip footing; Spread or isolated footing; Combined footing Strap or.
