A simply supported prestressed concrete beam is $$6$$ $$m$$ long and $$300$$ $$mm$$ wide. Its gross depth is $$600$$ $$mm.$$ It is prestressed by horizontal cable tendons at a uniform eccentricity of $$100$$ $$mm.$$ The prestressing tensile force in the cable tendons is $$1000$$ $$kN$$. Neglect the self weight of beam. The maximum normal compressive stress in the beam at transfer is

A concrete column carries an axial load of $$450$$ $$kN$$ and a bending moment of $$60$$ $$kN$$-$$m$$ at its base. An isolated footing of size $$2m \times 3m$$ side along the plane of the bending moment is provided under the column. Centers of gravity of column and footing coincide. The net maximum and the minimum pressures in $$kN/{m^2}$$ on soil under the footing are respectively.
