Bearing Capacity of Soils


1 - 2 weeks availability


This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers engineering manual, "Bearing Capacity of Soils", presents guidelines for calculation of the bearing capacity of soil under shallow and deep foundations supporting various types of structures and embankments. The principles presented are applicable to numerous types of structures such as buildings and houses, towers and storage tanks, fills, embankments, and dams. The first chapter presents definitions, failure modes, and factors that influence bearing capacity. The next chapter discusses non-load related design considerations such as frost action and soil erosion. Chapter 3 explores laboratory and in situ methods of determining soil parameters required. The last two chapters present an analysis of the bearing capacity of shallow foundations and deep foundations, respectively.
