bearing capacity

Some foundations are placed on or near slopes or excavations, such as roads in mountainous areas, tower footings for power lines, and bridge abutments. The design of foundation under these conditions is complex and the studies available in this regard are limited and concerned mostly about the determination of the reduction of the bearing capacity coeff...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical study for the effect of the cavity on the behaviour of a strip footing positioned on a reinforced sand slope. This study used a new type of geosynthetics called fiber carbon and fiber glass. These components have the potential to isolate the soil inside the geosynthetic and prevent shears stress mobiliza...

Predicting the pile’s load capacity is one of the first steps of foundation engineering design. In geotechnical engineering, there are different ways of predicting soil resistance, which is one of the main parameters. The pile load test is the most accurate method to predict bearing capacity in foundations, as it is the most accurate due to th...

In the design of piles partially embedded in rock, the main factors that influence the strength and deformability of the rock and the transmission of loads from pile to rock are of utmost relevance to pile behavior. Most empirical methods were developed based on data from specific regions. Differences in geological conditions, drilling methods and other...
