## Foundation Bearing Capacity (Pad and Strip Base: EC2)

Annex A of EC7 allows bearing capacity to be checked using two sets of partial factors: A1 and
A2.
In Tekla Structural Designer the bearing capacity check is performed on STR load combinations
using set A1 and on GEO load combinations using set A2.

## Check for Pad Base Bearing Capacity

Total vertical force:

Where:

## Ly = Length of foundation in Y­direction

A = Lx * Ly = Foundation area

h = Depth of foundation

## ly = Length of column/wall in Y­direction

x1 = Offset in X­axis. (Distance between centre of the pad to the centre of the support in
X­direction)

y1 =

## Offset in Y­axis. (Distance between centre of the pad to the

centre of the support in Y­direction)

## γsoil = Density of soil ­ user input

Fsur,G = (A ­ Ac)*scG = Unfactored load from surcharge for permanent load case

Fsur,Q = (A ­ Ac)*scQ = Unfactored load from surcharge for variable load case

## Ac = cross section of the column/wall

Fz,sup = Vertical load acting on support in STR/GEO limit states– (from analysis)

Mx,sup = Moment acting on support around X­axis in STR/GEO limit states– from analysis

My,sup = Moment acting on support around Y­axis in STR/GEO limit states – from analysis

Fx,sup = Horizontal force acting on support X­direction in STR/GEO limit states – from analysis

Fy,sup = Horizontal force acting on support Y­direction in STR/GEO limit states – from analysis

Eccentricity in X­direction:

ex = My,c / Fdz

Eccentricity in Y­direction:

ey = Mx,c / Fdz

## Check for Strip Base Bearing Capacity

The principles used in the strip base bearing capacity calculations are similar to those for pad
foundations. Only the direction X is checked (around Y­axis) using segment widths.
Design bearing pressure:

## fdz = Fdz / (L’x * Ly )
