Structural-Soil Interaction - a Different Approach

Extract from CP2004 Code of practice for foundations: 7.5 Bearing capacity and test loading 7.5.1 Bearing capacity of a pile. The bearing capacity of a pile is dependent on the size, shape and type of pile and on the properties of the soil in which it is embedded. The ultimate bearing capacity is the load at which the resistance of the soil becomes fully mobilized . . . Dennis Waite
