Q22. Which Design Approach did you use for verification of the Ultimate Limit State (ULS)?
Q23. What values of partial factors did you use for this ULS verification?
Q23a. If you used a second combination of partial factors, what values did you use for this second combination?
Q24. What width does the foundation need to avoid an ultimate limit state?
