The Bearing Capacity Analyses of Soil beneath the Blade of Circular Cassion
Based on the assumption of pointed blade of circular cassion, the formulas of the bearing capacity of soil beneath the blade are presented by the slip line method. The values of Nγ are not too sensitive to change for the soil’s internal friction angle, and are significantly greater than those obtained by Terzaghi’s and Berezantsev’s formulas. They decrease with an increase in the value of blade embedment depth and the taper angle.
