Design of Mat Foundation

The plan of a mat foundation is shown in the figure. Calculate the soil pressure at points A, B, C, D, E, and F using the Conventional Rigid method. (Note: All column sections are planned to be 0.5 m x 0.5 m. All loads shown are factored loads. Determine the reinforcement requirements and the thickness … Continue reading Design of Mat Foundation

Scalars and Vectors

What are the important points when dealing with scalars and vectors? I have summarized down below some four important concepts you need to know when solving problems involving scalars and vectors. A scalar can be a negative or positive number. Scalar has magnitude but without direction. A vector is a quantity that has a magnitude, … Continue reading Scalars and Vectors
