A rectangular footing, with a plan area of
1-4mx2·0m is to be placed 2m below the ground
surface. The footing would be subjected to a load
inclined at 10° to the vertical. The subsoil is clayey,
sandy silt with saturated unit weight of 18 kN /m3, and
c' = 10kN/m2 and cp' = 30°. Assuming the rate of
compute the magnitude of load carrying capacity of
the footing if. the water table is at the base of the
footing. Use IS: 6403-1981 recommendation and
assume factor of safety= 3·0.
