This footing system is especially usedby the moment resisting and concrete frame structures for the practical aspect of it facilitatingload transfer by the members only into the ground. It can work with most wall systemsincluding but not limited to masonry walls, concrete walls (in situ and precast), steel systemsand even timber walls.
