Abstract : This reviews the current (1 July 1963) literature which summarizes the various static and dynamic failure modes observed by several investigators. It also presents an analytical technique which explains the observed failure modes, suggests that the failure mode is dependent upon the footing acceleration during the impact loading, and defines the limiting footing accelerations associated with the two major failure modes.
