Abstract

The purpose of this study is to present the results of some recent laboratory model testing on the ultimate vertical load carrying capacity of rough, rectangular, surface footings which were placed on granular soil. A rigid base was located at limited depths. It is expected that these results will lend to a better quantitative understanding of the problem.
