Abstract:

It has been shown by means of theoretical and experimental methods that the size effect of a circular footing penetrating vertically into k soil has to be considered by applying to equation p kcb kphiz to the nth power the radius of the plate instead of the diameter. Slight discrepancies formerly noted between soil values established by means of rectangular and circular plates can be thus eliminated.
