Part of: Foundation Engineering: Current Principles and Practices


A research effort within the electric utility industry has focused on unified design methods for axially loaded foundations for transmission line structures. This research has been made available to industry engineers in the form of the computer program CUFAD. This program currently includes both drilled shaft and spread foundations and considers a variety of common design constraints and options.

Subject Headings: Foundation design | Power transmission towers | Power transmission lines | Spread foundations | Soil analysis | Shafts | Drilled shafts
