Redo Problem 16.4 using the modified general ultimate bearing capacity Eq. (16.31).

**16.1** A continuous footing is shown in Figure 16.17. Using Terzaghi’s bearing capacity factors, determine the gross allowable load per unit area (*q*_{all}) that the footing can carry. Assume general shear failure. Given: *γ* = 19 kN/m^{3}, *c*′ = 31kN/m^{2},
*D _{f}* = 1.5 m,

**16.4** Redo Problem 16.1 with the following: *γ* = 16.5 kN/m^{3}, *c _{u}* = 41 kN/m

Expert Solution

To determine

Find the gross allowable load per unit area

Given information:

The unit weight of the soil

The value of uniformity coefficient

The soil friction angle

The depth of foundation

The width of footing *B* is 2 m.

The factor of safety

Calculation:

Determine the depth factor

Substitute 1.5 m for *B*.

Determine the depth factor

Substitute *B*.

Determine the ultimate bearing capacity of the soil
