Abstract

The stress characteristics method (SCM) has been used to compute the bearing capacity of smooth and rough ring foundations. Two different failure mechanisms for a smooth footing, and four different mechanisms for a rough footing have been considered. For a rough base, a curvilinear non-plastic wedge has been employed below the footing. The analysis incorporates the stress singularities at the inner as well as outer edges of the ring footing. Bearing capacity factors, N-c, N-q, N-gamma are presented as a function of soil internal friction angle (phi) and the ratio (r(i)/r(o)) of inner to outer radii of the footing. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
