Document Type: Journal Paper


Theory developed indicating that sliding surface is composed of plane and circular cylinders that intersect symmetrical axis of foundation and ground level at angle adequate to demands of statics; distribution of stresses acting on sliding surface is determined from Koetter equation; method is shown to be in good conformity with Muhs' results obtained from tests conducted in place; use of method for granular soils and soils that have little cohesion.
