Bearing Capacity of Footings Near Slopes
Sloping ground near the footings have an adverse effect on their performance. Slope increases the settlements of the footings and while it reduces their bearing capacity. In the present paper, a footing with rough base has been considered for the analysis. The bearing capacity factors have been determined with the consideration of resistance of soil above the foundation level. A simple limit equilibrium method has been used to evaluate bearing capacity. The parameters considered for the analysis include the distance between edge of slope and center of footing, slope angle and foundation depth. It is observed from the analysis that bearing capacity reduces as distance between footing and the edge of the slope decreases. Increase in slope angle cause the reduction in the bearing capacity.
