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…
