    Yes, of course. See my application SCT.
    There is no formula. You must calculate the loads applied by the engine and gearbox on the fundation and calculate it as a beam subject to those charges.

    Thank you sir,
    So there is no international rules or regulation? I checked some DNV documents but I could not find anything.

    I do not think there is a specific formula for this case. As in many other cases, you need to make a direct calculation, using the maximum permissible stresses required by the CS with which you are working.
