Skirted foundation is one in which vertical or inclined wall surrounds one or more sides of the soil mass beneath the footing. Skirted foundation is an alternative approach required for improving the bearing capacity of raft foundation by using “structural skirts” fixed to the edges of the raft foundation. Construction of vertical skirts at the base of the raft foundation confines the underlying soil and generates a soil resistance on skirt side that helps the footing to resist sliding. The… Expand
