Behavior of ring footing resting on reinforced sand

2018-4-1  This paper aims to study the behavior of ring footing resting on loose sand and/or compacted randomly distributed fiber-reinforced sand (RDFS) when subjected to eccentric (0B, 0.05B and 0.1B, where B is the outer diameter of ring footing), inclined (0°, 5°, 10°, 15°, −5°, −10° and −15°) and eccentric-inclined loadings by using a

Study of the behaviour of skirted shallow foundations

2018-4-20  The performance of skirted shallow foundations resting on sand bed was investigated using physical modelling. Laboratory tests were performed on small-scale foundation models to study the behaviour of circular, skirted foundations subjected to vertical loads. The effects of foundation diameter, relative density of sand, skirt depth and roughness of the model surface

Different Soils & How They Affect Foundations

2015-8-31  Silt Silty soil can be smooth to the touch and retains water longer because of its smaller particles. However, because of its tendency to retain moisture it is cold and drains poorly. This causes the silty soil to expand, pushing against a foundation and weakening it, making it not ideal for support. Sand/Gravel Sand/gravel has the

Behavior of Sand After a High Number of Cycles

2016-6-17  Considerable strains appear in the structures during accumulation of the irreversible strains of the subgrade under the effect of the cyclic loads. If the number of cycles is very large, even a small strain after accumulation becomes significant and sometimes harmful. In this study, a simple numerical modeling of the behavior of sand under cyclic loading is proposed. The
