Foundations for Farm Buildings

Description: This bulletin discusses different ways of constructing the foundations of farm buildings. "The following general recommendations point out common errors and are intended to assist farmers to provide suitable foundations for ordinary farm structures except where unusual soil conditions are found. The foundation of a farm building may consist of (1) continuous walls, (2) a series of piers either built in place or precast, (3) a combination of walls and piers, (4) a concrete slab laid on the ground, (5) wood posts, or (6) wood sills. The essential features necessary for the successful use of the various types are discussed under the above headings; also the thickness of walls and dimensions of piers for medium-sized structures other than heavy storages are suggested. Requirements for cellar walls are given on pages 18-21. It is necessary that foundation footings be made wide enough to support the structure on the kind of soil to be built on. The characteristics and bearing power of various soils are given on p. 3. The general method of calculating the weight on footings is given on pages 38-44. It can be used where buildings are heavy or are of a different character from those described under Types of Foundations." -- p. 1

Foundation Investigations, NASA Mississippi Test Facility, Report 4: Dynamic Behavior of Piling During Initial Test Firings on the S-IC and S-II Test Complexes

Description: Report on test firings conducted by a U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) test facility. "The Mississippi Test Facility, located approximately 40 miles northeast of New Orleans, La., is the site of the test stands built to test the first and second stages of the Saturn V space vehicle. At the request of the U. S. Army Engineer District, Mobile, plans were developed for instrumenting the test stands to obtain data on foundation base pressures, lateral wall pressures, and pile loads during and after the actual test firings of the Saturn V engines" (p. xi).

The Relative Value and Importance of Perceived Benefits of Active Foundations of Public Community Colleges in the United States

Description: The problem of this study was the relative value and importance of perceived benefits of active foundations of public community colleges. The purposes were to identify a list of benefits; determine the importance of these benefits as perceived by presidents and foundation executive directors; assess the degree to which the level of importance of the benefits was affected by college or foundation demographics or foundation executive director characteristics; and to determine if presidents and foundation executive directors differ in their perceptions of the importance of the benefits. Survey instruments were mailed to presidents and foundation executive directors of colleges determined to have active foundations. Both instruments contained seven categories listing potential benefits to the community colleges of an active foundation. The foundation executive directors' instruments also requested college and foundation demographic data. Respondents were asked to rate the benefits according to their level of importance. Analysis of variance tests were performed to determine whether the categories of benefits were affected by any of the demographic data, when a level of significance emerged, a Scheffe' test was performed to determine the source of significance. Major findings were that the most important single benefit to the community colleges of active foundations is the provision of student scholarships. The "Public Relations/Political Influence" role of the active foundation is the most important category of benefits. The more fund-raising activities held and the greater the amount of contributions, the more positively community college administrators felt about the role of their active foundations in terms of external relations. Highly experienced foundation executive directors were more positive about the importance of the public relations role of their active foundations than were their inexperienced counterparts. The major conclusion of this study was that community colleges benefit from having active foundations, both monetarily and through the role of the ...

Effectiveness in Company-sponsored Foundations : A Utilization of the Competing Values Framework

Description: The purpose of this study was to determine the criteria used by foundation directors in assessing the effectiveness of contribution programs in company sponsored foundations. Quinn and Rohrbaugh's Competing Values Approach of organizational effectiveness was used as the theoretical framework for the study. The Competing Values Approach is an integrative effectiveness model which clusters eight criteria of effectiveness into four theoretical models of organizational effectiveness.
