Design 3-Pile Cap Footing

Enter the information given in the statement of the example, which are the loads and the materials. In this example the analysis of the structure provided the reactions per load case, as shown in the statement above. Note that all loads are applied at the top of a 3-ft high pedestal, which will create an overturning moment and will impact the pile loads.

The structure is subject to lateral wind loads and moments that will be transferred to the foundation. ASDIP FOUNDATION calculates the pile cap dimensions based on standard pile group layouts. Let’s use 3 piles with spacing of 3′-0″ and edge distance of 1′-6″. The image below shows the pile cap in plan and elevation, with the pile loads for the controlling load combination.
