Abstract

The load bearing capacity of clay soil is discussed in this paper. Conditions for the clay soil are sand/clay and sand and clay. The PLAXIS software using the finite element method is utilized to carry out the analysis. All calculations are accomplished for the plane strain condition with elastoplastic behavior. The Mohr-Coulomb critical state and the flow rule for soil are used. Triangle-shape elements are 15-nodal. The foundation and the joint section are considered as being rough. Results are illustrated in graphs in which changes of P/γcB according to D/B are presented for various overload and adhesiveness. Also, factors that influenced the penetrability of wedge mechanism and soil friction are assessed.
