Design will be done first for vertical load and longitudinal moments as per charts of Turner & Mourier . Then stresses on effective section due to transverse moment are superimposed to get final stresses in the member. Bottom section of abutment & reinforcement in it will be as shown below : Length at bottom section of abutment = Width of abutment bottom section= Equivalent length of abutment = 62.5 6600 mm 6475 mm 62.5 6600 mm = 1200 mm = 6.60 m 1.2 m
