STANDARD

DESIGN DATA

Unfactored Loads*

The following values are for reference only andrepresent the typical design loads applicable to a standard Metal Foundations design and installation method.

• Shear Force – 55.0 Kips

• Axial Force Up – 50.0 Kips

• Axial Force Down – 70.0 Kips

• Torsional Moment – 300.0 Kip-ft

• Overturning Moment – 3,000.0 Kip-ft

*In the event a higher value than those listed above and/or a restrictive condition of allowable deflection is required, our highly-trained engineerswill custom design a steel foundation, with specific installation procedures and equipment, to meet your needs.

DESIGN

Determining Factors

slide10

DESIGN: Determining Factors

  • LOAD
  • The Maximum Load of the structure to be mounted
  • Dead load
  • Wind load
  • Ice load
  • Combined dead and wind
  • Combined dead, ice and wind
slide11

DESIGN: Determining Factors

  • SOIL
  • Geotechnical Report
  • Boring Logs/Plans
  • Blow Counts
  • Water Table Depth
  • Soil Type
  • Soil Resistency/Aggressiveness or Corrosion Loss Rate
slide12

DESIGN: Determining Factors

  • FORCES
  • Maximum Overturning Moment
  • Moment of Fatigue
  • Maximum Horizontal Shear
  • Maximum Lateral Deflection, Rotation
  • Others: Maximum Torsional Moment, Up Force, Down Force

DESIGN

Developing Custom Designs

slide14

DESIGN: Developing Custom Designs

  • PROPRIETARY DESIGN METHODProprietary software and code
  • Developed by engineers to consider all of the design’s determining factors
  • Geotechnical capacity is based on the Broms (1964) method
  • Structural capacity is based on the latest AASHTO specification
slide15

DESIGN: Developing Custom Designs

  • PROPRIETARY DESIGN METHODProprietary software and code
  • A separate deflection analysis is provided using COM624 (1993) program
  • Calculates the required amount of sacrificial steel
  • Calculates the corrosion loss rate appropriate for the site soil and water conditions
slide16

DESIGN: Developing Custom Designs

  • PROPRIETARY DESIGN METHODDrawings
  • CAD Drawings
  • All drawings are reviewed and approved by an independent engineering firm
slide17

DESIGN: Developing Custom Designs

  • PROPRIETARY DESIGN METHODCoatings
  • Our system considers the soil conditions and anticipated life of the foundation to determine if galvanization or any other type of special coating is necessary
slide18

FABRICATION

Engineering Foundations

slide19

FABRICATION: Engineering Foundations

  • SOLID STEEL FABRICATION
  • Our foundations are fabricated to ASCE specifications from various grades of solid steel
  • Steel thickness, grade, and pipe diameter are predetermined by our proprietary design method
slide20

FABRICATION: Engineering Foundations

  • FINISHING
  • If necessary foundations are hot dip galvanized or epoxy coated to exact specifications that are predetermined by our design system
slide21

INSTALLATION

Method and Process

slide22

INSTALLATION: Determining Method

  • METHOD
  • Numerous proprietary installation methods utilizing various forms of hydraulic equipment
  • Our proprietary design method analyzes the soil type, location, and size of the foundation to determine which of our proprietary installation methods will be most effective
slide23

INSTALLATION: Determining Method

  • DELIVERY AND MOBILIZATION
  • Foundations aredelivered to the job site ready to install
  • Metal Foundations shows up onsite with all necessary equipment and manpower to install the foundations
slide24

INSTALLATION: Determining Method

  • PROCESS
  • Small hole is drilled
  • Insert Foundation
  • Hydraulic insertion using a pre-determined method
  • Any displaced soil is used for backfill
  • Attach structure
slide25

SAVE

Time and Money

slide26

SAVE TIME

  • Clients save approximately 50% of the time it takes to install standard concrete foundations
  • Pre-engineered steel foundations are delivered to the job site ready to install
  • Average installation time per foundation is 3 hours.
  • Structure can be mounted the same day the foundation is installed
slide27

SAVE MONEY

  • Clients save approximately 30% of the cost to install standard concrete foundations
  • Faster installation processes require less man hours
  • Steel foundations can be removed and relocated (sales tax is often eliminated)
  • Patented installation processes require less equipment than concrete
slide28

SAVE TIME AND MONEY

The comparison between a typical 5’ 6” dia. X 32” long drilled concrete caisson foundation installation and the Metal Foundations’ installation methodisintended as an example only.

slide30

THE PERFECT SOLUTION

  • Unrivaled for areas where contaminated soil is a concern
  • Easily installed in any type of soil
  • Perfect for remote locations
  • Excellent for areas where concrete is not practical or water is not readily available
slide31

THE PERFECT SOLUTION

  • Ideal for limited access and congested areas where down time is a concern
  • Provides a safer work zone
  • High-tech coatings are available for protection in acidic soils
  • Eliminates the use of guy wires for many pole installations
  • Designed for seismic conditions
slide32

HISTORY OF SUCCESS

With patented foundation designs and installation processes, Metal Foundations has installed more than 200,000 steel foundations worldwide.With a proven track record of durability and reliability, Metal Foundations has clearly positioned its steel foundations as the unparalleled alternative to concrete foundations.
