Investigating 6 degree-of-freedom loading on shallow foundations

Abstract:

Previous laboratory studies of the response of shallow foundations have only considered planar loading. This paper describes the development of a loading device capable of applying general loading on model shallow foundations. Loading involving all six degrees of freedom {vertical (V), horizontal (H 2, H 3), torsion (Q) and overturning moment (M 2, M 3)}, can be applied experimentally to the model foundations. Aspects of the design, including the loading rig configuration, development of a si...
