BEARING CAPACITY VARIATION OF SOIL DUE TO OVERBURDEN PRESSURE

  • Dr. Amod Thakur

Abstract

Those standard infiltration test (SPT) outcomes (SPT N-values) utilized within this investigation were remedied of the standard Normal vitality about 60% (N60) in the recent past utilizing them on associate dirt properties assess establishment settlement qualities bearing ability in the north focal zone about light of those remedied N-values, exactly geotechnical configuration parameters including those suitable bearing weight and versatile settlement from claiming establishments were predicted at fluctuating connected framework weights of 50, 100, 200, 300 and 500 kN/m2 utilizing customary explanatory models and numerical demonstrating. The numerical analysis results using Plaxis 2D, a finite element code, shows that Meyerhof’s and Peck’s et al. analytical/empirical methods of estimating the allowable bearing pressure of shallow foundations provide acceptable results. Results obtained show that an average bearing capacity value of 150 – 350 kN/m2 can be used for shallow foundations at embedment depth of 0.6 to 3.6 m. Keywords: Numerical modeling; Plaxis 2D; Finite element method.
