SURFACE LOADS ON GRANULAR MATERIAL UNDERLAIN BY A ROUGH RIGID BASE

A general theoretical analysis with numerical evaluation for the complete distribution of stress within a granular layer underlain by a rough rigid base, and the surface displacements of the layer beneath the footing is presented. The cases of a point load, a uniformly loaded circular footing acting at the surface of the layer but transmitting three usual types of contact pressure, have been considered. It is considered that the material is elastic, cross-anisotropic in which the ratio e/g is greater than 2 (1+ ). The effect of the material parameter e/g on stresses and displacements in granular materials has been presented in a non-dimensional form. (A) /TRRL/
