bearing capacity

Bearing capacity check for shallow foundations (SLU)

The vertical bearing capacity of the foundation soil is verified according to the theory of limit states using the following inequality: σ ≤ Rd/γRV or based on the factor of safety as: Rd/σ ≥ SFv where: σ-extreme design contact stress at the footing bottom Rd-design bearing capacity of foundation soil γRV-coefficient of vertical bearing capacity…

Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Footings Resting on Stratified Deposits of Soil, Meyerhof and Hanna 1978

Meyerhof Hanna 1978: Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Footings Resting on Stratified Deposits of Soil: All the theoretical analysis dealt with so far is based on the assumption that the subsoil is isotropic and homogeneous to a considerable depth. In nature, soil is generally non-homogeneous with mixtures of sand, silt and clay in different proportions. In…

TERREMOTO DE MEXICO

El “efecto local” sobre Ciudad de México es lo que ha producido la mayor devastación en el terremoto de 7.1 registrado en 17 septiembre en el centro del país. Así lo valora Nieves Sánchez Guitián, secretaria del Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Geólogos (ICOG). ES LO CONOCIDO COMO EL “EFECTO LOCAL” DE LOS TERREMOTOS, QUE EN…
