	%X Foundation of tower crane serves to ensure stability
against vertical and horizontal forces. If foundation stress is not
sufficient, tower crane may be subject to overturning, shearing or
foundation settlement. Therefore, engineering review of stable support
is a highly critical part of foundation design. However, there are not
many professionals who can conduct engineering review of tower
crane foundation and, if any, they have information only on a small
number of cranes in which they have hands-on experience. It is also
customary to rely on empirical knowledge and tower crane renter-s
recommendations rather than designing foundation on the basis of
engineering knowledge. Therefore, a foundation design automation
system considering not only lifting conditions but also overturning
risk, shearing and vertical force may facilitate production of foolproof
foundation design for experts and enable even non-experts to utilize
professional knowledge that only experts can access now. This study
proposes Automatic Design Algorithm for the Tower Crane
Foundations considering load and horizontal force.
