# Installation of Genset 150KW for WMPC Fire Fighting System Alternative

Source of Power

60Hz

## Width of Engine : 1016 mm

DESIGN FOUNDATION :

Wf = e(We)(N)

Where :

## 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

= 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.

Sand 2.64 1680
Gravel 2.50 1525

= 0.0129 m3

= 0.0356 m3

= 0.0683 m3

= 0.0260 m3

= 20.55

= 1.1508 m3

= 2.3016 m3

= 0.5754 m3

## 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)

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

## 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.
