      So-called frost-protected shallow foundations usually consist of a monolithic (thick-edged) slab wrapped with vertical and horizontal rigid-foam insulation. Although the International Residential Code (IRC) does not require a shallow foundation to have insulation below the slab, omitting the subslab insulation is not a good idea. Frost-Protected Shallow Foundation Study. This project used funding from AHFC to purchase equipment and drilling services to install and monitor five thermocouple strings at each of two houses. This was part of a larger project that in turn is part of the PhD project of Mr. Paul Perreault. The basic idea behind frost-protected shallow.

    SPS (2)(a) (a) Frost protected shallow foundations shall be designed in accordance with ASCE–32 as adopted in Table SPS (2)(b) (b) Portions of footings or foundations located directly under window areaways do not require frost protection provided the rest of the foundation is protected in accordance with this section. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Policy Development and Research has been so kind as to publish a plethora of information on the subject of Frost-Protected Shallow Foundations, which (while not specific to post frame construction) would apply to .

    A frost-protected shallow foundation (or FPSF) is designed to protect concrete from frost-related damage. Constructing a FPSF is an affordable alternative to building a T-shaped foundation with deep, wide footings. A frost-protected shallow foundation uses polystyrene insulation to protect concrete from freezing conditions. This book has helped to teach me the fundamental facts about foundations, which is the first thing in home-building. However, I believe it omits certain types of foundations which are just as necessary to know about, namely, the frost protected shallow foundation and the floating slab foundation.

A frost protected shallow foundation uses strategically placed insulation to raise the frost depth around a building, which can reduce the footing depth to as little as 16 inches, even in severely cold climates.

A Builder’s Guide to Frost Protected Shallow Foundations 1 Background A frost protected shallow foundation (FPSF) is a practical alternative to a deeper, more-costly foundation in cold regions with seasonal ground freezing and the potential for frost heave. The International Residential Code ® (IRC) includes prescriptive methods for constructing frost protected shallow foundations in heated buildings.

Frost-protected shallow foundation design can be used effectively with walk-out basements by insulating the foundation on the house’s downhill side, eliminating the need for a stepped footing. FPSF may also be useful in remodeling projects, as it helps minimize site disturbance.

Footings and foundations must be designed and constructed in accordance with IRC Chapter 4. Installation of the Mono Slab® EZ Forms— Frost Protected Shallow Foundation Forming System must start at one of the footing or foundation corners.

A minimum of 16 inches ( mm) of exterior Mono Slab® EZ Forms must be placed along intersecting walls. This is stated directly in the ASCE 32 section and is often overlooked by Code Officials because the ASCE 32 is incorporated into the IRC and IBC by reference and contains much more detailed information on Frost Protected Shallow Foundations than the IRC and IBC code books.

The stone bed must meet the ASTM spec for frost resistant fill. Frost protected shallow foundations are most suitable for slab-on-grade construction in cold climates. There are other specific scenarios when this approach may be feasible, including the presence of site and excavation limitations and walk-out basements.

Heat loss through slab. This Standard addresses the design and construction of frost-protected shallow foundations in areas subject to seasonal ground freezing.

Foundation insulation requirements to protect heated and unheated buildings from frost heave are presented in easy-to-follow steps with reference to design tables, climate maps, and other necessary data to furnish a complete frost-protection design.

Foundation insulation requirements to. The booklet is solely intended for the purposes of slab-on-grade, frost- protected, shallow foundations subject to the limitations set out. The scope is not intended to encompass any other aspects of the house construction.

The design and the construction of the foundation is solely the responsibility of the builder/contractor. Design Guide to Frost Protected Shallow Foundations. Author(s): NAHB Research Center. Available as web page or PDF (links will open in a new window) For decades, standard construction practice and building codes required that foundation footings be built below the frost line.

The reference booklet you downloaded for this course, the HUD “Revised Builder’s Guide to Frost Protected Shallow Foundations” contains design methods for the most common foundation types.

The methods in the builders guide are all contained in ASCE 32 and therefore meet the requirements of. Vertical wall insulation and horizontal insulation of frost-protected shallow foundations that adjoin a slab-on-ground foundation that does not have a monthly mean temperature maintained at a minimum of 64°F (18°C) shall be in accordance with Figure R(3) and Table R(1).

Vertical wall insulation shall extend between the frost. Frost Protected Shallow Foundations Are “Cool” Wed 03/12/08 pm by George Porter. That’s right. They are cool, not cold. Just to be sure we all are on the page; let’s review what a frost protected shallow foundation really is and why we need to worry about frost anyway.

Frost Protected Shallow Foundations A frost protected shallow foundation is a practical alternative to a deeper, more-costly foundation in cold regions with seasonal ground freezing and the potential for frost heaving. The effect of heat from the building is magnified when insulation is strategically placed around the foundation.

These requirements come in part from conventional construction and in part from A Design and Construc-tion of Frost-Protected Shallow Foundations. ASCE 32 addresses the design and construction of frost-protected shallow foundations in areas subject to seasonal ground freezing.
