MACHINE FOUNDATION

DESIGN COMPUTATIONS

ENGINE SPECIFICATION:

Model: 16V26DZC

Frequency 60 Hz

DIMENSIONS:

## Overall weight = 70,000 kg or 70 tons

DESIGN OF GENSET FOUNDATION

Where:

## Wf = total weight of foundation

Pb = brake power

W fb = weight of foundation/brake(mHP)

## Converting brake power/engine power to Metric Horsepower first, (mHP) Pb ;

Where:

1 mHP = 0.7355 KW

## Engine Power = 5,440 kWm

1 mHP
Pb = 5,440 KW
0.7355 KW
Pb = 7,396.33 mHP

From:

## Prime mover Single cylinder Multi-cylinder

Gas engine 1135 kg 730 kg
Diesel engine 910 kg 570 kg
Steam engine 320 kg 230 kg
Steam turbine Not to exceed permissible deflection as stated by turbine

manufacturer

Therefore, for diesel engine and multiple cylinder, WFB = 570 kg/bmHP

Then:

570 kg
Wf = 7,396.33 mHP 1 mHP

W f =4,215,908.1 kg

` But this value is suitable to dampen vibration almost completely as stated from the

## handbook of Morse page 108.

It is stated from the handbook of Morse that, the concrete foundations yielded by the

application of the table 4-5 data are sometimes grotesquely huge, obviously unnecessary for the

average installation. The data should be regarded as the extreme upper limit of necessary

## foundation weight and be decreased appropriately when complete dampening is unnecessary.

In other words, the calculated weight of foundation is too much expensive and very large

amount of weight. For this reason the weight of foundation must be decreased to have an actual
dampening for machine foundation. In this design, the designers prefer to use the formula in the

PME code which states that the foundation mass should be 3 to 5 times the weight of the

machinery.

## Reduced weight of foundation

Vf = weight per cu . meter ( table 4.1 by morse)

350,000 kg
Vf = t 1000 kg
2.66 3 x
m 1t

Vf = 131.58 m3
From PPE by MORSE pg. 90

The foundation should be concrete of 1 part cement, 2 parts sand, and 4 parts broken

stone or gravel (maximum of 50 mm); the entire foundation should be poured at one time with

no interruption than are required for spading and ramming. The top should be level and left

rough for grouts. After pouring, the top should be covered and wet down twice daily until the

forms are removed at the end of the third and fourth day.

## Therefore use 1:3:5 concrete mixture for machine foundation.

From table 4-1 by Morse pg 90. Data on concrete mixes to yield 1 cu. Meter concrete.

For 1:3:5 ratio, Weight per cu meter = 2.66 tons/m3

## Converting the dimensions of the Gen. Set to meter;

39.37
Bedplate length = 381.889 in. 1m = 9.7 m

39.37
Bedplate width = 94.80 in 1m = 2.41 m

39.37
Over all height = 156.30 in 1m = 3.97 m

## Solving for the length of foundation, Lf;

Lf = LB + C
Where:

Lf = length of foundation

LB = length of bedplate

## C = clearance or 10% of the bedplate.

The designer decided to have a 10% clearance in both sides of the Gen. Set to make

## service and maintenance easier.

Lf = LB + 0.10 LB

## Lf = 9.7 m + 2(0.10 x: 9.7m)

Lf = 11.64 m

Bearing stress is the stress cause by the force which is perpendicular to the resisting area

(Ab). The formula above can be used in solving the lower width of the machine foundation

because the total weight of unit and its foundation is projected vertically downward and it is

## perpendicular to the resisting area of the soil as shown in the figure.

From table 4-4. (PPE by Morse pg.105)

## Table 4-4. SAFE BEARING POWER OF SOILS

Type of soils Tonnes/m2
Native rock 1950 up
Ashlar masonry 245-290
Best brick masonry 145-195
Common brick masonry 50-98
Clay, compact 50-78
Clay, soft 9.5-19.5
Gravel and sand 78-98
Sand 19.5-58.5
Quicksand, loam, etc. 5-9.5

If the type of soil in a resisting area is assumed to be Common brick masonry, then safe

bearing power of soil will be in the range of 145-195 tons per square meter. Say use the average

Fb WT
Sb = Ab = Ab

## b = lower width of foundation

Lf = length of foundation

## From PPE by Morse pg. 108

It is stated that, safe bearing power of soils for machine foundation are from quarter to

## half of those in table 4-4, depending on the machine.

In this design, the designers decided to use half of those in table 4-4.

Then,

Sb = 170 m2 x 2 x 1 tonnes

Sb = 85,000 m2

b = 0.4245 m

a=W+C

Where:

## C = clearance or 10% of the bedplate

W = width of bedplate
But since W is not given use engine width.

## a = 2.408 m + 2(0.10 x 2.408 m)

a = 2.8896 m

Since the lower width b comes out to be less than the upper width a, therefore it is
customary to make b equal to a, and so the foundation has a rectangular cross-section.

NOTE:

## If b>a, then the foundation is a trapezoidal cross section,

If b<a, then; let: b=a, which means that the foundation is a rectangular cross section.

Therefore, b=a=3.7188 m.

Based on the foregoing computation the foundation is calculated to be safe since its

## Quantity of bolts = 2(W + L) x 3pcs/m

Where:

W = width of bedplate

L = length of bedplate

Substituting:

## Quantity of Bolts = 2(2.8896m + 11.64m) x 3 pcs/m

Quantity of Bolts = 87.1776 pcs.

## Diameter of pipe sleeve:

For the dimension of pipe sleeve, say 80 mm nominal diameter, 610 mm long, and 3.2

mm thick steel pipe as pipe sleeves (From PMC, Appendix I, Table I4, page 392). Assuming that,

## it takes 3pcs of bolts every meter of bedplate, such that,

Knowing the number of bolts used solved for the total length of pipe sleeve,

## Total Length of Pipe Sleeve = 53,070 mm. pcs = 174.1138ft

Divided by the standard length of steel pipe which is 20 ft. per piece, the quantity of steel

## Pipe or sleeve will be,

174.1138 ft
Quantity of Steel Pipe = 20 ft / pcs

## Total Length of Plate Stopper = 11,310 mm or 37.11ft

Divided by the standard length available in the market which is 20ft. per piece, so that,

37.11 ft
Quantity of Square Plate Stopper = 20 ft / pcs

## Quantity of Square Plate Stopper = 2 pcs
