Ultimate-Load Analysis of Edge-Loaded Foundation Slabs

Defining the variation of soil pressure in a general manner to cover the variation from the purely cohesive to the purely cohesionless states the upper and lower bounds are determined for the load carrying capacity of an edge-loaded rectangular foundation slab. The results are plotted for a wide range of geometrical and soil pressure parameters. A procedure for applying the results to the case of orthotropy is also indicated. D.V. Reddy and E.L. Murphree
