Abstract

The bearing capacity of layered soils studies have been conducted using different approach whether theoretical, experimental and combination of both. Many empirical equations have been developed from correlation between in situ data and/or laboratory data in order to understand soil deformation when subjected to loading. However the complex soil behaviour could not be understood only with raw/input data obtained from site investigation or correlation equation. Thus with helpful in numerical modelling, stress-strain soil behaviour is well predicted, design and interpreted using appropriate soil model. Finite element method becomes powerful tool in geotechnical modelling where soil bodies are discretised into small finite elements. The FEM deals with complex geometry, mixed boundary conditions and material nonlinearity. Studies on bearing capacity and factors affect soil movements of strip footing on clay layered soils are summarized and presented. Different factors in design and modeling simulation approach may give different calculated of bearing capacity on clay layered soils using numerical method.
