Abstract

The article describes the application, in Greece, of an approximate resolution of the prevision of the superficial foundation bearing capacity of a school building group on jointed granite. The method is based on the mechanics of the discontinuous media. On a sufficient number of a canvas points which is situated on the critical section under the foundation, the developing shear stresses are defined, based on the elastic theory, and they are compared with the variable -into the various directions- shear strength of the jointed rock. The resulted data conduct to the setting of boundaries of plastic zones which allow the approach of the failure form and of the sliding body. The limited load value is defined by successive approximations.

Prevision of the Bearing Capacity of Superficial Foundation on Jointed Rock

The article describes the application, in Greece, of an approximate resolution of the prevision of the superficial foundation bearing capacity of a school building group on jointed granite. The method is based on the mechanics of the discontinuous media. On a sufficient number of a canvas points which is situated on the critical section under the foundation, the developing shear stresses are defined, based on the elastic theory, and they are compared with the variable -into the various directions- shear strength of the jointed rock. The resulted data conduct to the setting of boundaries of plastic zones which allow the approach of the failure form and of the sliding body. The limited load value is defined by successive approximations.
