Abstract: The problem of settlement of spread footings located within or near granular slopes has been investigated in the laboratory using a large testing facility. Based on these results, footings for a prototype bridge abutment were dimensioned. The settlement behaviour of the abutment was monitored over 18 months. The results are given and discussed.
