In this post we will discuss about continuous foundation as it is concerned with column spacing in a continuous foundation. In the very before post we have discussed about relative stiffness and its influence on foundations to be assumed as either rigid or flexible.For convenience to understand this post we recall the Meyerhof formula to determine relative stiffness
The explanation of each parameter of the equations are described in previous post “How to Determine A Foundation Whether to be Designed as Flexible or Rigid Body?” and not described as post becomes very long.
assumption is summarized below:a. In a continuous strip average load of two adjacent spans does not vary greater than 20% of greater value but less than the value 1.75/λ. b. In a continuous column spacing of two adjacent spans does not vary greater than 20% of greater value but less than the value 1.75/λ.
