How does the static height d result in the bending measurement of block foundations (calculation as a substitute bar)?

Answer

The static height d for the proof "bending resistance safety equivalent beam" is given by the plate thickness minus the set concrete cover on the underside of the block foundation, the diameter of the regular bending reinforcement of the plate on the underside in both directions and half the diameter of the reinforcement of the "replacement beam".

The static height d is taken into account differently in both directions (bending around the x and the y axis). This must be taken into account when evaluating the calculation in the result table 2.2 "Essential proofs - resistance to bending damage - replacement beams".
