Contact Pressure of A Rigid Circular Foundationby Michael M. K. Ho,
Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1969, Vol. 95, Issue 3, Pg. 791-802
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.
