Abstract

This paper presents results from a programme of centrifuge experiments which examined the effects of drained preloading on the stiffness and load carrying capacity of shallow square footings founded on an overconsolidated clay. The increases in stiffness and bearing capacity induced by various levels of preloading are quantified and compared with standard design guidelines and previously published numerical predictions.
