The static and dynamic behavior of small-scale rectangular footings supported on the surface and buried in sand and clay specimens was determined experimentally, and the results are compared herein with dimensionless load-displacement relations previously developed for square footings. The effect of shallow depth of burial for rectangular footings in clay was found to be small for the range of parameters investigated, i.e., the nondimensional loading required to produce a given nondimensional displacement is approximately 10 percent greater for buried footings than for surface footings.
