On the circular footing plates on two-parameters foundation under arbitrary loads

  • Loo Wen-da

Modelling soils by two-parameter foundation model, this paper calculates the distributions of displacements of circular footing plates on soils and reactions of soils under arbitrary loads using semi-analytical finite element method. And it improves V.Z. Vlazov's solution in the case of axisymmetry. The results agree well in comparison with those by F E M. At the same time, the boundary conditions of circular plates on soils are discussed.
