Footings are crucial part of foundation development. Footings are generally formed with concrete through rebar reinforcement that is poured into an excavated trench. The footings are developed to provide support to the foundation and avoid settling.
A footing is a foundation unit that is built in brick work, masonry or concrete supported with the base of a wall or a column with the aim of dispersing the load over a huge area. A footing or a shallow foundation is arranged immediately underneath the bottom most part of the Superstructure supported by it.
A combined footing stands for a long footing that supports two or more columns in (generally two) one row. A combined footing belongs to a rectangular or trapezoidal shaped footing.
