Footing and its Types in Australian Standards

Footing refers to a structural element that is used to support a building's foundation and transfer its load to the ground. In Australian standards, there are three main types of footings:
Strip footings: These are continuous footings that are used to support walls or other structural elements along a straight line. They are typically used for low-rise buildings with a light load.
Pad footings: These are isolated footings that are used to support individual columns or posts. They are typically used for heavy loads or where the soil bearing capacity is low.
Raft footings: These are large continuous footings that cover the entire area of a building's foundation. They are used to distribute the load of the building evenly across the soil and are typically used for large or multi-story buildings.
