Document Type: Journal Paper


A study of the distribution of contact stresses on a foundation-soil interface is presented based on experimental results from a rigid circular footing with smooth base and sides. The effects of magnitude of applied force, repeated loading and embedment are considered with the view of comparing the existing theories.
