NOMOGRAPH FOR BEARING CAPACITY

KRIZEK HAS SIMPLIFIED TERZAGHI'S GENERAL EQUATIONS FOR BEARING CAPACITY BY ADOPTING CERTAIN APPROXIMATIONS, THE SIMPLIFIED EXPRESSIONS BEING WITHIN 15% OF TERZAGHI'S FOR ANGLES OF INTERNAL FRICTION LESS THAN 35 DEG. IN THE PRESENT WORK A NOMOGRAPH IS PRESENTED BASED ON THE SIMPLIFIED EQUATIONS, TO BE USED AS A TOOL FOR RAPID DETERMINATION OF BEARING CAPACITY. IT IS NOTED THAT AS THE NOMOGRAPH ENTAILS NUMEROUS SMALL ANGLES, CARE MUST BE EXERCISED TO OBTAIN MAXIMUM ACCURACY WHEN CROSSING THE VARIOUS SCALES AND IN THE ASSOCIATED GRAPHICAL CONSTRUCTIONS.
