DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF FOOTINGS IN A SATURATED SOIL MEDIUM

Very little study has been made of the influence of water onthe dynamics of embedded foundations. This article describes field vibratory tests carried out to investigate the influence of soil moisture on the vertical and torsional response of two embedded footings. The conditions investigated included (1) embedded footing with sides exposed, (2) backfilling sides with dry sand, (3) footing sides not backfilled but flooded with water, and (4) backfilling sides with saturated sand. The soil used was silty sand, and the results are graphically presented. (TRRL)
