Question

**A plate load test was carried out on a sand soil at the
expected foundation depth on a circular plate of 45 cm diameter.
Failure of the soil below plate occurred when the applied load on
plate reached 734 kg. If a square footing of 3 m width is going to
be constructed on the same soil and at the same testing depth, what
will be the allowable bearing capacity in kg/cm ^{2}. (Take
F.S = 3).**

Answer #1

Plate load test is adopted globally to determine in-situ bearing
capacity of the subsoil and considered as one of the most important
field test for any big construction project. A plate load test was
conducted on a 300 mm side square plate at a depth of 1.10 m below
the ground level in pure clayey soil for an important construction
site. Failure of the soil occurred at a load of 45 kN. A. Calculate
the safe bearing capacity of a...

Part A
A square foundation has a width of 2.0 m. The soil has a
friction angle of φ' = 27 and c' = 15 kN/m2. The unit
weight of the soil γ = 18 kN/m3. Determine the allowable
gross load (kN) on the foundation with a factor of safety of of 3.
Assume that the depth of the foundation is 2.0 m and that general
shear failure occurs in the soil. Give only the numeric answer (no
unit).

An Engineering consultant appointed on the construction of a
Bridge site decided to conduct the Plate load test to get fair idea
about the bearing capacity of the sub soil. The test was conducted
on a circular plate of 200 mm radius at a depth of 1.20 m below the
natural ground surface in pure clayey soil. The failure took place
at a load of 55000N. Calculate the safe bearing capacity of a 1.2 x
1.4 m rectangular footing founded...
