Abstract

The behavior of soils at shallow depth is studied for different particle characteristics, packing density and gravity, using both numerical and experimental methods. Higher frictional resistance is observed in angular and well-graded soils. Packing density and inter-particle coordination prevails over individual particle characteristics, and gravity has a secondary effect on the normalized foundation response. Copyright ASCE 2006.
