Abstract:
The following example illustrates use of STM's for design of a pile cap. Two load cases are considered: 1) axial load only, and 2) axial load and overturning moment. The design is based on Appendix A of ACI 318-02 Results are compared to section design procedures per ACI 318-99. Compared to section design metods, STM design is more rational and leads to a more reliable structure. Because the reinforcing bars are located above the piles, overall footing depth is increased compared to traditional design in which the bars are placed between piles.
