Meyerhof

This solution is based on the theory of G. G. Meyerhof. The calculation is the same as for standard approach, except the following coefficients:

bearing capacity factors:

shape factors:

for: φ ≤ 10°

for: φ > 10°

where:

depth factors:

for: φ = 0°

for: φ ≠ 0°

inclination factors:

where:

d

-

depth of the footing bottom

b

-

width of the foundation

l

-

length of the foundation

φ

-

angle of internal friction of the soil

δ

-

angle of deviation of the resultant force from the vertical direction
