For this question , I tried to use L' = L -2e and B '= B , i ended up getting different final answer when i use L ' = L , B'= B -2e
In the notes , we can see that if the eccentricity were in the direction of length of the foundation , L '= L-2e , and B'= B ...
But , in this question , I am not sure whether the eccentricity were in the direction of length of the foundation or the width of foundation
The Attempt at a Solution
Why cant I use L' = L -2e = L-2(0.25) = and B '= B to determine the answer. Since this question is a square foundation , I'm confused whether to use L' = L -2e = L-2(0.25) = and B '= B or L ' = L , B'= B -2e ... Can anyone explain please ?
