Research on Foundation Stability of Building Based on Foundation Bearing Capacity


Article Preview

Foundation stability can ensure the building is safe and reliable. Reliability of the building depends not only on the reliability of structural members and the entire structure of the system. In this paper, there is the aspect of soil to make the analysis of the reliability and stability of the foundation of the issues involved temporarily upper structure. The paper takes subsidence areas as the engineering background, combines with its mining geological conditions and applies comprehensively soil mechanics, probability integration method, and numerical simulation method and so on. According to the theoretical calculating formula of ground bearing capacity in the soil mechanics theory, analyze the major influential factors of building ground bearing capacity in subsidence areas, and they are internal friction angle, cohesive, and foundation base buried depth, especially physical and mechanical properties of soil.
