The design of column bases in single storey buildings

In single storey buildings of the shed type, the vertical loads on the columns are generally small, while the overturning moments clue to wind forces are relatively large. The stability moments are supplied in one of three ways:- (l) by means of a portal frame such as a knee braced truss with the bases of the columns considered as being hinged. (2) by means of a portal frame with fixed bases to the columns. (3) by means of fixed beams to the columns, the connections of tile roof trusses to the columns being considered hinged. In methods (2) and (3) the design of the steel bases and the concrete foundations is all important, and it is the purpose of this article to deal with the design of the type of symmetrical base and foundation in common use.
