Title: Suggested Analysis and Design Procedures for Combined Footings and Mats
Author(s): ACI Committee 336
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 304-324

Abstract:Report deals with the design of foundations carrying more than a single column or wall load. These foundations are called combined footings and mats. Although primarily concerned with the structural aspects of the design, considerations of soil mechanics cannot be eliminated and the designer should focus on the important interrelation of the two fields in connection with the design of such structural elements. This report is limited to vertical effects of all loading conditions and excludes slabs-on-grade.
