Calculations for Strip ABC: a) The average uniform soil reaction, quI = q uA \$ quC 2

b) Total soil reaction Q = quI x (B1 x L) where B1 = B' c) Total Column loads Pu, ABC = Pu1 + Pu2 + Pu3 d) Average load Pu, avg(ABC) = Q \$ Pu, 2 Pu,
avg( ABC ) ABC ABC

## e) Load multiplying factor FABC =

Pu,

f) The modified loads on this strip P'ui = (FABC) x (Pui) , Pu, avg( ABC ) ) g) Modified Average soil pressure qu, modified = quI x * ' Q * ' + ( h) The pressure distribution along the length of the strip qu, L (ABC) =

Note that the same can be done for strips DEF (B2 = 2B') and GHI (B3 = B') where: quII = quIII = q uD \$ q uF 2 q uG \$ q uI 2

## Steps (b) to (h) are repeated as above

The shear and bending moment diagrams for strip ABC is shown below. Other strips will have similar plots.

STEP 3 DEPTH OF CONCRETE, d' Estimate d' for: a) Column 1, 3, 7 and 9 by 2-way punching shear (p' = l + w). b) Column 2, 4, 6 and 8 by 3-way punching shear (p' = 2l + w). c) Column 5 by 4-way punching shear (p' = 2l + 2w). (Use Equations For Punching Shear or approximate d' by Structural Depth of Concrete table for punching shear failure). Select the largest d' from (a), (b) or (c)

STEP 4 REINFORCEMENT The calculations below are repeated for every strip in L and B direction. a) Select the appropriate moments for each strip (refer to moment diagram) and estimate the moment per meter by Mui/m = Mu/Bi or Li b) Using Mui/m, d', fc' and fy estimate the reinforcement As (refer to Equations for Reinforcement or the percent reinforcement can be obtained directly from Percent Steel Tables).
