Thesis

The effect of soil stiffness on the undrained bearing capacity of shallow foundations on layered clay deposits

Summary

My thesis at the first place seeks to establish a theory of operational undrained shear strength estimation based on laboratory, in-situ tests, and FE modelling to improve practical ways in which the bearing capacity of a shallow foundation can be estimated.

Next the role of soil stiffness in undrained bearing capacity of shallow foundation on layered clay would be investigated.

Different configuration of two--layered clayey soil and a few circular footings with different diameters will be tested in centrifuge and test results would be assessed in conjunction with small strain and large deformation FEM.

Why my research is important

Operational undrained shear strength estimation and

the effect of soil stiffness on bearing capacity of shallow foundations on layered clay
