Source of Power

TYPE/MODEL : Cummins Diesel Generator Set Model DGFA


60Hz

Engine Speed : 1800 rpm

No. of Cylinders : 6 Cylinders ( In-Line)

Rated Power : 150 Kw

Cylinder Bore and Stroke : 114 mm and 135.1 mm

Fuel Consumption : 43L/ hour

Weight of Engine : 1513 kg

Length of Engine : 2662 mm

Width of Engine : 1016 mm

DESIGN FOUNDATION :

From the PME Code, 2008 Edition Chapter 2 ,page 12

Wf = e(We)(N)

Where :

Wf = weight of the foundation

We= weight of the engine in Kg

e= empirical coefficient (from PSME code,Table 2.2 page 13 ,e= 0.11)

N= engine speed, rpm

1.) Weight of foundation, Wf


Wf = (0.11) ( 1513 Kg) (1800)
= 7,061 Kg

2.) Volume of Foundation, Vf


Vf= Wf/(2406 kg/m3 ) , m3

Using a density of 2406 kg / m3 for the concrete

Vf= 7,061kg /(2406 kg/m3)


= 2.935 m3

3.) Depth of Foundation , h


h = 2 Vf / (a+b) L

a = w + 2c

where : w= width of the engine


c= clearance = 101.6mm (atleast 10% clearance of the length of
the bedplate)

a= 1016 + 2(101.6)
a= 1,219.2mm = 1.2192 m
for rectangular engine foundation, a= b

L= length of engine + 2 (c)


= 2662 + 2(101.6)
= 2865.2 mm = 2.8652 m

h= 2(2.935)/ (1.2192 + 1.2192) (2.8652)


= 0.84 m say 1 m

4.) Quantity of cement, sand, and gravel in a 2.935 cubic meter concrete
foundation. Assuming one bag of cement is equivalent to 0.028 cubic meter.
Using 26 liters of water per bag of cement. Using 1:2:4 mixture.

MATERIAL SPECIFIC GRAVITY DENSITY(kg/m3)

Cement 3.10 1428


Sand 2.64 1680
Gravel 2.50 1525

Let Vc,Vs,Vg,Vw = compact cement, sand, gravel, and water respectively.

Volume of Cement = Vc = 1428(0.028)(1) / 3.10(1000)


= 0.0129 m3

Volume of Sand = Vs = 1680(0.028)(2) / 2.64(1000)


= 0.0356 m3

Volume of Gravel = Vg = 1525(0.028)(4) / 2.50(1000)


= 0.0683 m3

Volume of Water = Vw = 26 / (1000)


= 0.0260 m3

Volume Total = 0.1428 m3

Total number of batches = (2.935m3) / (0.1428m3)


= 20.55

Volume of Sand Required = 20.55(0.028)(2)


= 1.1508 m3

Volume of Gravel Required = 20.55(0.028)(4)


= 2.3016 m3

Volume of Cement Required = 20.55(0.028)


= 0.5754 m3

Using the Fullers Formula:

C = 55/(c+s+g) = [(55) / (1+2+4)] (2.935 m3 ) ; where : (c+s+g) =


concrete mixture
= 23 bags
Volume of Water Required = 23(26) / 1000
= .598 m3

Total Volume of cement, sand, gravel, and water


Vt = 1.1508 + 2.3016 + 0.5754 + 0.598
= 4.6258 m3

5.) Weight of Foundation Design , Wfd


Wfd = 4.6258 m3 (2406 kg/m3)
= 11,129.6748 kg
6.) Factor of Safety

FS = Soil Bearing Pressure (Total Base Area)


Total Load on Soil

Soil Bearing Capacity for Sandy gravel or gravel = 5000 lb/ft 2 = 24,395.5
kg/m2

Source: Table 401.4.1; CABO One-and Two-Family Dwelling Code; 1995

FS = 24,395.5 kg/m2 [(1.2192m)(2.865m)]


1,513 kg + 11,129.6748 kg

FS = 6.7 SAFE

The weight of the reinforcing bars is 1% of the weight of the foundation


stated in PME Code and should be placed both vertically and horizontally, to
avoid thermal cracking. Foundation bolts of specified size should be used and
surrounded by a pipe sleeve with an inside diameter of at least
3 times the diameter of the anchor bolt. Foundation bolts length should be at
least 18 times the diameter of the anchor bolt.
