Numerical Analysis of Bearing Capacity

Research is in progress, in conjunction with the Technion, Israel, on the use of numerical procedures to obtain high quality solutions to certain bearing capacity problems. The research is currently focusing on the strength of plane strain and axisummetric foundations placed on two-layer soils consisting of a sand layer overlying clay.
