SEVERAL PARTICULAR CASES, INCLUDING BOTH SMOOTH AND ROUGH INTERFACE CONDITIONS AND THE CASE OF AN EMBEDDED ROUGH FOUNDATION, ARE CONSIDERED, AND VALUES OF THE BEARING CAPACITY FACTORS ARE GIVEN IN EQUATION AND GRAPHICAL FORM. CERTAIN SPECIAL CASES OF THE RESULTING SOLUTIONS ARE SHOWN TO BE CONSISTENT WITH VARIOUS COMMONLY USED EXPRESSIONS. /AUTHOR/
