Abstract

The investigation presented here utilizes finite element technique coupled with Galerikins weighted residual process to predict the settlement of footing resting on the surface of clays and subjected to transient load. The predicted quantities have been compared with the experimental observations of model footing tests. The influence of fundamental natural period of soil and foundation system on the settlement and bearing capacity of footing has been brought out.
