Abstract

The problem of a shallow strip footing resting on sand which is supported by a neighbouring L-shaped retaining wall is considered. The centrifuge tests performed for this work are regarded as independent geotechnical events with careful control of ground conditions. Both the backfill and the soil supporting the foundation of the model wall have been made of a single dry granular soil. Attention is limited to one grain size. One particular strip footing is considered, its width being expected to lead to failures of the footing either alone or in conjunction with the retaining wall. Three parameters are examined: the density of the sand, the distance of the footing from the wall and the width of the base of the wall. Refs.
