- When the upper column does not provide full bearing area over lower column, the column splice is provided with the following assumption
- The equivalent axial tensile load Pe, which produces an average axial tensile stress in the section equivalent to the combined stress due to axial tension P and bending M, at the extreme fibre of the section, is given by (where Z is the section modulus of the section).
- If the depth of two column sections is equal, then the column splice is provided
- For the economical design of a combined footing to support two equal column loads, the projections of beams in lower tier are kept such that bending moment under column is equal to
