BEARING CAPACITY THEORY FROM EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS

AN APPROXIMATE METHOD MUST BE VALUED ON THE CLARITY OF THE ASSUMPTIONS ON WHICH THE METHOD IS BASED; THE ACCURACY AND APPLICABILITY OF THE METHOD; THE COMPLETENESS OF THE METHOD; AND THE COMPUTATIONAL WORK REQUIRED IN THE APPLICATION 1001570 ACCURACY ALL 4 COUNTS. THE METHOD OF SUCCESSIVE TRANSFORMATIONS IS SUITABLE IN CASE OF A PERVIOUS STRATUM OF INFINITE DEPTH. IN THE CASE OF FINITE DEPTH, THE METHOD REQUIRES THE USE OF ELLIPTIC INTEGRALS. THE OPINION IS EXPRESSED THAT THE SEARCH FOR MORE ACCURATE ANALYTICAL METHODS ON THE BASIS OF HOMOGENEITY IS JUSTIFIED. THE APPLICATION OF ACCURATE ANALYTICAL METHODS IS JUSTIFIED SINCE THE ADDITION OF COMPUTATIONAL ERRORS TO THE MODELING ERRORS IS AVOIDED WITHOUT EXCESSIVE WORK. THE DERIVATION OF MAPPING FUNCTIONS IS DISCUSSED.
