Paper Title:
Simulations of Bearing Capacity of Foundation on Unsaturated Granular Soils
  Abstract

Typically a shallow foundation is chosen to support several types of common structure. Several equations for the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundation have been proposed with assumption of fully saturated or completely dry conditions. In fact, almost 40 percent of natural soils on the earth surface are in an unsaturated state. Therefore, the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow strip foundation on unsaturated granular soils is developed in this paper using limit equilibrium concept. The simulations from the developed equation for a laboratory-compacted-sand are performed. The results are carefully presented and discussed.
