[Webinar] Simplified Method for Shallow Post and Pier Foundation Design

For Architects

Shallow isolated post and pier foundations are used extensively in post frame building systems. This session describes the conditions under which it is appropriate to use the simplified design methodology. Then it describes how to use the simplified method to model the ground surface interface between sidewall posts and the soil and to determine required embedment depths to resist lateral and uplift design loads. The session concludes with a set of examples which illustrate engineering design calculation procedures for determining  post and pier embedment depth requirements to resist lateral and uplift design loads.
