    Each spreader plate would need to be 10.7 m square (factored) and thick enough to distribute ALL of the load over that area, not just the effective bearing area. Go to your local or preferred...

    So you need to check it for a combination of loads; both horizontal for bending and compression? Something also sounds a bit off about the information they have provided you. But anyways, as you have...

    Have you tried looking at the snap settings configuration? I know it sounds a bit DUH! but it's usually the simplest things that give us the most trouble.

    It looks like a Lat/Long coordinate rather than an E/N location which would give a latitude range of +90 to -90 and a longitude range of +180 to -180. Without seeing the drawing it's hard to guess at...

    Depends on the size of the hole. If it's small, say for some light load services, the local deflections may be negligible (10% or less of the beam depth ~). If it's a large hole, I'd look at the...

    It's available on Kindle for ~57, somewhere around $70 I think. To get it any cheaper as a physical/PDF copy, you'd probably have to step back by 5 or 6 editions.

    The client gave to me
    A poorly constructed and eccentrically loaded foundation pad with bad ground conditions.

    A deeper cover can be a good thing, especially if the pads are to open to the elements. What measurement did they set any bottom and face cover out for? Not seeing any geotech reports, its hard to...

    Can you see anything else on it like "8.8", "M10" or "10.9", "M18" any other similar markings? If not, you have to try to contact the manufacturer and get them to provide you with more information.
