This paper presents the results of laboratory model tests on the behavior of a strip footing supported by a single geotextile layer and by a row of soil nails in a sandy slope. A comparison between bearing capacity improvements in the two cases were made and analyzed. Parameters varied include depth of the reinforcing layer, edge distance of the footinglocation of soil nail row, and location of the footing relative to the slope crest.
A strip footing is a method of foundation on a solid surface, also called foundation on steel. A soil survey and the size of the house determine whether this method is suitable. Often a strip footing is applied to houses that are built on sandy soil.
An experimental investigation into the ultimate bearing capacity of strip footing on sand slope is reported. The parameters investigated are the effect of setback distance of the footing to the slope crest, slope angle, relative density of sand and footing width on the ultimate bearing capacity of strip footings. A series of finite element analyses was additionally performed on a prototype slope to ascertain the validity of the findings from the laboratory model tests and to supplement the results of the model tests.
Strip footing 75 creates reinforcement for a concrete strip footing footing that supports several points of contact or a region of points of contact Strip footing supports a length of wall or a line of closely spaced columns, for example. In Tekla Structures, strip footing has a polygon shape that the user defines by picking points. Longitudinal bars for the top and bottom surfaces and sides of the footing.

Log In. I like to debate structural engineering theory -- a lot. If I challenge you on something, know that I'm doing so because I respect your opinion enough to either change it or adopt it. Web: www.
