SOIL LATERAL RESTRAINT IN RIGID FOUNDATIONS

RESTRICCION LATERAL DEL SUELO EN PILAS DE FUNDACION

The soil structure interaction in rigid foundations is analyzed. The foundation is subjected to vertical, horizontal and overturning forces applied at the ground level and both lateral and foundation level soil restraint are included in the problem. Soil stress-strain characteristics are assumed to be those of an elastic medium. Simplified equations to compute interaction pressures and foundation displacements are obtained as a function of the soil deformation characteristics and foundation geometry. /TRRL/
