S11 ~ ~trlp and Square Footings Strips footings have fixed width and infinite (or relatively long) length and are often used for smaller buildings (1-2 story) and walls. Square footings are a special case of the rectangular footing. B q z Influence charts are available for both Boussinesq and Westergaard solutions: x 1. Express vertical distance from footing bottom relative to (as fraction of) the footing width B (i.e. zlB) Express lateral distance from footing center relative to (as fraction of) the footing width B (i.e. xlB) 3. In chart use zlB on vertical axis and xlB on horizontal axis to find stress contour as a fraction of the uniform footing pressure, I1CJ v = I x q. (Also can approximate, with some error, a rectangular footing by using the chart for a square footing with an equivalent footing width B'= .JLxB) Find and compare location of 10% contour (0.1 q) for square vs. strip footing and
