Some useful tips for machine foundation design
Before starting the detailing work for foundations, the following general needs concerning machine foundations should be fulfilled and the results should be verified.
2. The settlements should have been inside the allowable limits.
4. There should have been no resonance, therefore the normal frequency of the foundation–soil system should have been either too big or too small with regard to the operating frequency of the machine. Toward low-speed machines, the natural frequency should have been high.
6. All rotational and correlating parts of a machine should be well-adjusted efficiently with the purpose of reducing the unbalanced forces or moments.
