    Abstract

    This paper investigates the effect of spatial correlation length on the behavior of an eccentrically
    loaded strip footing (or a footing subjected to combined vertical and moment (VM) loading) resting on spatially
    variable soil, using a combination of adaptive finite element limit analysis and random field theory. The results
    of Monte-Carlo simulations are presented in terms of failure envelopes defined in VM load space for different
    spatial correlation lengths. The area of the soil mass affected during failure is quantified as the consequence and
    employed to assess the risk associated with footing failure. This study provides new insight into the behavior of
    an eccentrically loaded strip footing on random soil.
