Re: bearing capacity equation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I don't know whether you are looking for bearing capacity of soil.
Peck/Hanson/Thornburn book has charts based on the shallow foundation
size, foundation depth below grade and SPT N value

ACI code can be used by neglecting foundation spring values (subgrade 
reaction - see recently published paper in the ACI Structural Journal) )
Punching failue could be used.

Along the lines of my last post regarding geotechnical software....

Does anyone know if there are equations for the Peck/Hanson/Thornburn
bearing capacity factor curves?

With and without allowances for local and punching shear failure?

Shallow and Deep foundations?
