Foundations of bridges are often situated on slopes. The bearing capacity of inclined footings on sloping ground has been little studied and the suitability of the theoretical methods to predict the behaviour of such footings is yet unknown. The use of computer programs based on finite element method has become more common in geotechnical design. The efficient utilization of these programs requires accurate measuring of soil parameters and suitable selection of element types. The aim of this… CONTINUE READING
