Check for tension at top of foundation

Permanent and variable (see Section6.2.2) Gk = 1021.0 / 4.4 = 232.0 kN / m Qk = 225.1 / 4.4 = 51.2 kN / m Wind

Mk = 17.2 x 14.1 x [14.1 / 2 + 0.6] = 1855.3 kN / m Resolved into couple 1 m either end of wall

Global imperfections(see Section 6.2.5)

= 365.9 kNm GkH = 365.9 x 0.51 / 3.4 = 54.9 kN / m At ULS for maximum axial tension Wk is lead variable action:

= 1.0 x 232.0 -135 x 54.9 = -660.7 kN / m = nominal = 13.2 kNm / m

As before

= 660.7 x 103 /434.8 + 13.2 x 106 / [(157-43) x 4348] = 1520 + 266 = 1786 mm2 i.e. not critical

.'. Use 6 no. H16 @ 200 cc b.s. for at least 1 m either end of wall
