EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON BEARING CAPACITY OF INCLINED SKIRTED FOOTINGS ON C- Φ SOILS
Conference: Creative Trends in Engineering and Technology
This work discusses the suitability of inclined internal skirts along with outer vertical insertions or skirts\non bearing capacity of skirted footings on c-Φ soils. The parameters includes thickness and depth of vertical insertions as\nwell as spacing of inclined internal skirts. The scaled model footings made up of mild steel were considered for this\nresearch work. Square and rectangle are the two shapes adopted. The size was designed in such a way that the lateral\nconfinement effect does not affect the test results. The foundation soil was in dry condition. The readings of the applied\nload measurements were taken using a pressure cell between the jack and the model footing and settlement was\nmeasured using the dial gauges placed on the footing. The pressure-settlement curves showed that increase in thickness\nand reduction in spacing increased bearing capacity.
