Project #26104 - Bearing Capacity

Footings for a structure are to be built beneath a basement slab on a clay soil at a depth of 20 ft below present ground level# The groundwater table is 15ft below the ground surface# The soil void-ratio is about 0#087# If the average bearing pressure on the footing is 2,600psf,

 

A) Estimate the settlement of 10ft and 5ft square footing#

 

B) What is the factor of safety for the footing in above problem against bearing failure if the clay soil has an unconfined compressive strength of 3,600psf?
