Centrifuge Tests on Laterally-Loaded Footings Supported by Rigid Inclusion-Reinforced Clay
An experimental study using centrifuge physical modeling was performed with the purpose of examining the lateral load behavior of rigid inclusion-supported footings. The lateral load behavior of rigid inclusion-supported footings is currently poorly understood. Uncertainty exists regarding the performance of these systems under lateral loading. The results of the centrifuge tests suggest that one of the main components of a typical rigid inclusion-supported footing system, the load transfer platform, plays an important role in determining the capacity and response of such systems under lateral loading.
