Bearing Capacity of Plain and Reinforced Concrete Blocks

An investigations of bearing capacity of plain and reinforced concrete blocks is described. The effects of distance between load and edge, footing and loading areas, height, base friction, and size effect, were studied. The test results are considered with those of previous research data, and a new design equation is proposed. Professor A.R. Cusens, Y.B. Wang and K.K. Wong
