A strip footing 2.5 m wide carries a uniform pressure of 248 kN/m² on the surface of a sand deposit. The water table is at the surface, and saturated unit weight of sand of 20.8 kN/m³. Determine the effective vertical stresses (kPa) at a point 3.8 m below the point 3.2 m from the centre of the footing to the LEFT after the application of the pressure. (2 d.p). Use unit weight of water 9.8 kN/m3
