Investigating six-degree-of-freedom loading of shallow foundations on sand

Abstract:

Laboratory studies of the response of shallow foundations have previously considered only planar loading. This paper describes experimental work carried out using a loading device that applies general loading onto model shallow foundations. The loading, involving all six degrees of freedom [vertical (V), horizontal (H2, H3), torsion (Q) and overturning moment (M2, M3)], has been applied to a 150 mm diameter circular flat rough foundation on a loose dry silica sand. Aspects of the loading rig ...
