BAB II
SHALLOW FOUNDATION ON SOIL LAYERS
1. Bearing Capacity of Foundation on Soil Layers
Foundation on soil layers means the thickness of soil below the foundation H<2B,
and another soil exist below it.
For Soft clay upper the stiff clay, Vesic proposed the ultimate bearing capacity as
follows
qult = c (1) Nm +Df
Net
qultnet = c (1) Nm
where :
c (1) = cohesion for first layer
Nm = bearing capacity factor
Df = depth of foundation
= unit weight of first layer soil

## Figure II.1 Foundation on clay layers

For soft clay under the stiff clay, bearing capacity factors (Nm ) given in Tabel II.1.
Vesic suggested a reduction factor for c (1) if clay has sensitivity around 2, that is c
replaced by 0,75 c (1).
If stiff clay above soft clay, bearing capacity (Nm) factor can be derived by
Nm = 1/ + (c2/c1) cNc

(with Nm cNc)

where :

## L, B = length and width of foundation

cNc = Nc = bearing capacity factors, considering correction factor in shape of foundation
c(1), c(2) = cohesion first and second layers
For circular and square foundation, = B/(4H) where Nc = 6.17
For strip foundation, = B/(2H) where Nc = 5,14

Example 2.1
Rectangular foundation 2 m x 3 m on the clay layers suface. cu 1 = 0.5 kg/cm2 and cu2 =
0.7 kg/cm2. Thickness of first layer is 1 m. Calculate ultimate bearing capacity.

Figure C 2.1
H = 1m ; B = 2,0 m ; cu(1) = 0,5 kg/cm2; cu(2)= 0,75 kg/cm2
cu(2) / cu(1) = 0,75/0,5 = 1,5
B/H = 2,0/1 = 2,0
From Table II.1a Nm = 5,14
q ult = Cu (1) Nm = 0,5 x 5,14 = 2,57 kg/cm2 = 25,7 t/m2
Example 2.2
Circular foundation with diameter of 4,0 m on clay layer. cu 1 = 8 t/m2 , sat1 = 2 t/m3 ,and
cu2 = 2 t/m2. sat2 = 2 t/m3 . Calculate ultimate bearing capacity

Figure C 2.2

cu(2) / cu(1) = 2 / 8 = 0,25

Nm = 1/ + (cu(2) / cu(1)) cNc = 1/1 + 0,25 x 6,17 = 2,54
Nm = 2,54 < cNc (OK !)
qult = cu (1) Nm + Df sat = 8 x 2,54 +( 1x2) = 22,32 t/m2

2. Foundation bearing capacity on soil layer granular soil above clay
Clay soil tend to receive a distribution pressure in a method of 2V : 1H. The first
layer acts as fiction foundation with effective with of :
Bf = B + H
quf = c2 Nc + 1 (Df+H) Nq + 0,5 2 Bf N
where :
quf = ultimate bearing capacity with effective width Bf
c1, c2 = cohesion
1, 2 = unit weight
Df = depth of foundation
H = distance between foundation base and the surface of second layer
Bf = B + H
Nc, Nq, N = bearing capacity factors

clay. Sand have = 45, c = 0, and d = 1,65 t/m3. Clay have cu = 3 t/m2 and u = 0. If the
depth of foundation 1 m and ground water table is at clay surface, calculate the bearing

qult = (quf d H)

## qultnet = qult Df d = 66,3 (1 x1,65) = 64,65 t/m2

2.3 Bearing Capacity on soil layer, soil below the foundation bordered by a very stiff
soil.
Mandel and Salencon (1969) give a formula of:
qult = c c Nc + q po Nq + 0,5 B N
where:
qult = ultimate bearing capacity of strip foundation
c = cohesion of upper soil
po = Df = overburden pressure at foundation base
Df = depth of foundation
= unit weight of soil
B = foundation width
Nc, Nq, N = bearing capacity factors
c,q, = coefficient of increasing bearing capacity.
