Any suggestions on where to look for design examples/references to design a footing for residential construction? Standard construction around here is to use a thickened slab edge or strip footing. The typical strip footing you see in books has a symmetrically placed wall above the footing.
To increase the bearing capacity the footing gets widened towards the interior side of the footing. I presume some some eccentricity gets applied to the footing in this situation. I have some ideas on how to do it, I just thought there might be some published examples to confirm my assumptions.
