Foundation Engineering

CLASS EXAMPLE

of granular material and transmits a total design load of 36.6MN. The water-table would

normally be well below founding depth but, at certain times of the year, can rise to ground

level. Using Design Approach 1 and partial factor set Combination 2 (A2 + M2 + R1) from

Tables appended, determine a suitable founding depth.

The characteristic soil properties are as follows: saturated unit weight, sat = 19kN/m3, bulk

unit weight above water table, bulk = 16kN/m3, and ' = 35.

Bearing resistance/unit area, R'/A = c'Nc + q'Nq + 0.5BN

Nc = (Nq-1)cot' ; Nq = etan' tan2(45 + '/2) ; N = 2(Nq-1)tan'

s q N q 1

sc =

N q 1

; sq = 1 + (B/L)sin' ; s = 1 - 0.3(B/L)

Depth factors:

For preliminary design purposes take as unity.
