Abstract

Laboratory model test results for the permanent settlement of a surface square foundation supported by a sand layer and subjected to a sustained static load superimposed by a cyclic load has been presented. Based on the model test results, the nature of variation of the permanent settlement of the foundation with the intensity of the static loading and the amplitude of the cyclic load intensity are presented.

Settlement of Shallow Foundation on Sand Due to Cyclic Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

Laboratory model test results for the permanent settlement of a surface square foundation supported by a sand layer and subjected to a sustained static load superimposed by a cyclic load has been presented. Based on the model test results, the nature of variation of the permanent settlement of the foundation with the intensity of the static loading and the amplitude of the cyclic load intensity are presented.
