LOAD SETTLEMENT CURVE METHOD FOR SPREAD FOOTINGS ON SAND. DISCUSSION

Briaud and Jeanjean present an approach for the development of load settlement curves for spread footings on sand. The discusser, Richard Deschamps, is interested by: 1) the authors' observation that the load settlement curves are independent of scale when plotted in terms of s/B versus applied pressure and 2) reaction from colleagues to the implication that the bearing-capacity equation is a poor model. Deschamps presents a hypothesis to explain the apparent independence of the load settlement data to scale for the site described.
