<p>Skirted foundations are the shallow foundations in which the footing is reinforced by the addition of vertical plates or skirts. Skirted foundation is one of the new approaches for improving the performance of shallow raft foundation by using skirts to ...

<p>Foundation design must satisfy limited values of settlement. Settlement is an essential criterion in the design process of shallow foundations. To calculate the settlement under different types of shallow foundations, 79 samples were taken from twenty-three ...

<p>The engineering understanding of the behaviour shallow foundation in earthquakes has developed piecemeal over the past sixty years with the emergence and refinement of solutions to several separate aspects of the overall problem, prompted and provoked by ...

<p>This paper presents the development of a shallow foundation system consisting of mat foundations for support of all structures including heavily loaded, settlement sensitive structures at a recently completed Polysilicon Plant in China. The site grading ...

<p>The response of surface foundations to large overturning moments is studied under undrained conditions. Rigid circular, strip, and rectangular footings of various aspect ratios are considered, with the soil modeled as an inelastic homogeneous deposit, characterized ...

<p>The Modified Kerr-Reissner Model is a new advanced subgrade model developed using a unique hybrid derivational approach. It synergistically combines the best features but none of the flaws of the traditional mechanical and elasticcontinuum approaches when ...

Stiffened slabs-on-grade are one of the most efficient and inexpensive foundation solutions for light structures on shrink-swell soils. After removing the top soil, the stiffening reinforced concrete beams, say 1m deep and 0.3 m wide, are formed in the natural ...
