A PLATE BEARING TEST USING A PROCESS DERIVED FROM WESTERGAARDS REACTION MODEL

THIS ARTICLE BEGINS WITH A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT USED BY THE SAINT-BRIEUC REGIONAL LABORATORY FOR PLATE BEARING TESTS. A MORE DETAILED ACCOUNT IS GIVEN OF THE SYSTEM OF AUTOMATIC RECORDING OF PRESSURE- DEFORMATION CURVES ON THE XY RECORDING TABLE. THE SECOND PART DEALS WITH THE METHOD OF PROCEDURE AND CONTAINS SOME INDICATIONS CONCERNING THE SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN AND THE AVERAGE DAILY YIELD THAT CAN BE EXPECTED. THE INTERPRETATION OF THE RESULTS RELATING TO THE CONTROL OF EMBANKMENTS AND STABILIZED LAYERS INCLUDES A BRIEF REMINDER OF THE K MODULUS AND INTRODUCES A NEW PARAMETER DELTA, DELTA EQUALS WE/WR/. SOME CRITERIA ARE THEN PROPOSED FOR JUDGING THE BEARING CAPACITY AND THE DEGREE OF COMPACTING. IN CONCLUSION, A STATISTICAL STUDY INDICATES THE RELATIONSHIP FOUND BETWEEN WESTERGAARDS K MODULUS AND THE MODULUS E OF SOIL BEARING.
