Its wrong, max sf occur at edge of the base plate.

R.Verman said: (Apr 6, 2016)  
Maximum shear occurs at the edge of the base plate.

Gulshan Suhag said: (Jun 22, 2016)  
Option B is correct for max bending moment.

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.

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

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

The correct answer should be the center of the base plate.

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

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

Amir Khan said: (Dec 17, 2019)  
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.
