Bearing Capacity Evaluation of Square Footing Resting on Reinforced Sand

Imran Khan; Ravi Kumar Sharma

Volume 14, Issue 3 , July 2023, , Pages 813-824


  An experimental study is carried out to improve the bearing capacity of soils by using geotextile. In the present study geotextile (tire reinforcement) is used as geotextile, whereas sand is used as a soil medium. This research work presents the results of laboratory load tests on model square footings ...  Read More

Numerical Analysis of Square and Circular Skirted Footings Placed on Sand using PLAXIS 3D Software

Gaurav Juneja; Ravi Kumar Sharma

Volume 13, Issue 4 , October 2022, , Pages 1049-1066


  This paper presents the numerical analysis of square and circular skirted footings placed on different sands using the PLAXIS 3D software. The numerical analysis is done using the Mohr-coulomb (M-C) yield criteria. The size of the footings is considered as 100 mm for both the square and circular footings. ...  Read More

A 3D Discrete Element Analysis of Failure Mechanism of Shallow Foundations in Rocks

S. Sepehri; R. Shirinabadi; N. Hosseini Alaee; E. Moosavi; A. H. Bangian Tabrizi

Volume 11, Issue 2 , April 2020, , Pages 467-480


  In this research work, a 3D numerical modeling technique is proposed based on the 3D particle flow code in order to investigate the failure mechanism of rock foundations. Two series of footings with different geometries and areas are considered in this work. The failure mechanism obtained is similar ...  Read More
