The maximum shear force occurs at the edge of the base plate.

And maximum bending moment occurs at the centre of beam ya center of the base plate.

Maximum bending moment occurs at centre of beam and Maximum Shear force occurs at egde of loading As Per Khurmi.

In a grillage footing, the maximum shear force occurs at the "edge of base plate".

Dilawar khan said:   7 years ago
The correct answer should be the center of the base plate.

Edge of base plate = w/2L (L-l).

L=length of beam, l= length of base plate/column.

In book regarding to author NEGI, max shear force occurs at the edge of the LOAD.

He doesn't told it iccurs at edge of d GRILLAGE BEAM. May the max shear force will be at the edge of the LOAD TRANSFERRED BY THE COLUMN TO THE GRILLAGE BEAM.

If any one know the answer with correct explanation please post here.
