Bearing Capacity Test Of Soil At Amloh Road, Mandi Gobindgarh-Punjab


A foundation is required to transmit the load of the structure on a large area of the soil . To avoid bearing capacity failure of foundation it is essential to take into consideration before design of foundation, two type of action by the soil when subjected to load. This paper focus on the bearing capacity should be low enough to ensure that the settlement caused is not excessive.The bearing capacity should be such that excessive shear strength is not caused.
