Influence charts for computation of stresses in elastic foundations i. introduction 1. Scope of Investigation and Summary.-This bulletin describes a simple graphical procedure for computing stresses in the interior of an elastic, homogeneous, isotropic solid bounded by a plane hori- zontal surface and loaded by distributed vertical loads at the surface.

Foundations of structures may experience movements through a number of causes, among which may be listed: (a) elastic and inelastic compression of the sub-soil due to the weight of the structure, (b) ground water lowering, producing an increase in effective stress beneath the foundation,File Size: KB.

The theoretical solutions give total stresses in a weightless elastic medium. Total stresses are given because the soil is assumed to be a continuum.

Their resolution into effective stresses and pore water pressures is a separate problem not considered in terms of the theory of elasticity.

With respect to numerical methods for calculating stresses and deflections in an elastic mass. Stoll (15) has used a digital computer for calculation of vertical stresses in a foundation soil due to variable and asymmetric column loads.

His results indicated that the approach is satisfactory and feasible for use in similar problems. Evaluation of the Settlement Influence Fact ors of Shallow Foundation by Numerical Analyses Vol.

the charts are based on boussinesq's theory by assuming that the soil is semi-infinite, homogeneous, isotropic, and elastic. this technical note presents influence charts which are similar to and are used in the same manner as those presented by newmark for computing the vertical stresses.

Assumptions of Boussinesq theory: a. For soil, the soil mass is elastic, isotropic, homogeneous and semi-infinite. The soil is weightless.

For load, the load is vertical, concentrated. Shallow foundations settlement Example #1: Find the settlement due to consolidation of a 9 ft x 9 ft column foundation with a load of lbs.

The SIGMA/W 10% line, however, is much deeper than the 10% chart line. The shapes of the bulbs of pressure are consistent with closed-form solutions, but the low-stress change influence is much deeper.
