Project: Frost-Protected-Shallow-Foundation-For-An-ICF-Building-Wall-In-Southeastern-Michigan (HatD1yae-101-03h-eebn)
from our portfolio of Recent Projects

Our Recent-Projects Include New Construction As-Well-As Addition and Renovation of House, Commercial, Condo, Light-Industrial, Multi-Family Buildings, ...

For this project we provided a shallow frost protected foundation instead of a conventional footing with its bottom at below frost depth. In Southeastern Michigan, bottom of wall foundations is typically 42" below finished grade in non-granular soil conditions to protect the building from ravages of frost upheave.

A good reference source ... American Society of Civil Engineers, SEI/ASCE 32-01, Design and Construction of Frost Protected Shallow Foundations , 2001 for this project.

I am depicting in the following a picture showing a cross section of the wall and the related design data.
