shear failure in soil occurs is called the ultimate

bearing capacity.

02/24/15

Bearing Capacity Mr. Jjuuko Samuel, MUK

3

Sudden or catastrophic failure

Well defined failure surface

Bulging on the ground surface adjacent

to foundation

Bearing Capacity Mr. Jjuuko Samuel, MUK

02/24/15

4

Common in sand or clay with medium compaction.

Significant settlement upon loading.

Failure surface first develops right below the foundation

and then slowly extends outwards with load increments.

Foundation movement shows sudden jerks first (at qu1)

and then after a considerable amount of movement the

slip surface may reach the ground.

A small amount of bulging may occur next to the

foundation.

Punching Failure:

Common in fairly loose sand or soft clay

Failure surface does not extends beyond the zone right

beneath the foundation

Extensive settlement with a wedge shaped soil zone in

elastic equilibrium beneath the foundation. Vertical

shear occurs around the edges of foundation.

After reaching failure load-settlement curve

continues at some slope and mostly linearly.

Notes:

1. Notice use of effective

base dimensions B, L by

Hansen but not by Vesic.

2. The values are consistent

with a vertical load or a

vertical load accompanied by

a horizontal load HB.

3. With a vertical load and a

load HL (and either HB=0 or

HB>0) you may have to

compute two sets of shape

and depth factors si,B, si,L and

di,B, di,L. For i,L subscripts use

ratio L/B or D/L.

4. Compute qu independently

by using (siB, diB) and (siL,

diL) and

use min value for

design.

Notes:

1. Use Hi as either HB or HL, or

both if HL>0.

2. Hansen (1970) did not give an ic

for >0. The value given here is

from Hansen (1961) and also used

by Vesic.

3. Variable ca = base adhesion, on

the order of 0.6 to 1.0 x base

cohesion.

4. Refer to sketch on next slide for

identification of angles and ,

footing depth D, location of Hi

(parallel and at top of base slab;

usually also produces eccentricity).

Especially notice V = force normal

to base and is not the resultant R

from combining V and Hi..

2. Compute m = mB when

Hi = HB (H parallel to B)

and m = mL when Hi = HL

have both HB and HL use

m = (mB2 + mL2)1/2. Note

use of B and L, not B,
