BEARING CAPACITY OF ANISOTROPIC COHESIONLESS SOILS

Previous test results of the anisotropic shear strength of cohesionless soils are reviewed. The theory of the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations on homogeneous isotropic soils is extended to anisotropic cohesionless soils. The proposed method of analysis is compared with the results of some load tests on anisotropic sand. An extension of this method to foundations under inclined load is briefly discussed. /TRRL/
