Summary Bearing Capacity of Soils provides all the essential guidelines needed to determine allowable and ultimate bearing capacity of soils under shallow and deep foundations. Comprehensive in scope, the guidebook covers topics ranging from determining the length, number, and diameter of drilled shafts to in situ modeling of bearing pressures in shallow foundations.
Well-illustrated with numerous figures, tables, and charts, chapters review the significant array of environmental and soil conditions that can complicate the evaluation of bearing capacity. Earthquake and dynamic motion, soil subject to frost action, and seepage erosion are among those factors examined. How does one calculate soil parameters for a proposed construction area? When should the Terzaghi model be used to identify the bearing capacity, and when is it better to use the Meyerhof or Hansen models? The volume addresses these questions and more, providing completed examples of calculating bearing capacities in both shallow and deep foundations. Principles provided throughout the volume are applicable to numerous structures, including buildings, houses, towers, storage tanks, fills, embankments, and dams.
