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.

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
