Bearing capacity calculations are an important part of the design of foundations. Most of the terms in the bearing capacity equation, as it is used today in practice, are empirical. Shape factors for square and rectangular footings could not be derived in the past because three-dimensional bearing capacity computations could not be performed with any degree of accuracy. Likewise, depth factors could not be determined because rigorous analyses of foundations embedded in the ground were not… CONTINUE READING
