Overturning

Foundation Design

Overturning is considered in design such that the resisting moment from the soil pressure (equivalent force at load centroid) is greater than the overturning moment, M, by a factor of safety of at least 1.5

Addressing Overturning

A well-connected house is one that is soundly designed and constructed using the continuous load path method of construction. This requires that a home is built using a system of connectors at all the joints - from the roof to the foundation - thereby redistributing the external pressures of ...
