However, the test results must be adjusted to compensate for differences in width, shape, and depth of the plate and the mat Coduto In the first stage, where the load is less than kN tthe load is measured by a load gauge which has a maximum capacity of only kN t but is more accurate. Figure 3 shows an exposure of the gravelly cobble deposit at the test site during excavation and Fig.
Large Scale Plate Load Tests
In the present study, the near-vertical slopes made by the excavation at the test site could stand by themselves without support. Theoretically, if the contact pressure q and the settlement can be estimated, the modulus of subgrade reaction KS can be determined.
Standard testing methods as prescribed in ASTM b were followed. Note that the characteristics of coarse granular materials might s1194-94 better estimated by several other methods, such as shear- and compression-wave measurements, Becker Hammer Drill penetration tests, and the photo-sieving d1194–94. In reality, q and interact with each other and are difficult to estimate. Canadian foundation engineering manual.
However, these topics are beyond the scope of the present paper. The length of the basin from north to south is about 48 km and the maximum width from east to west is about 14 km. It can also be time dependent, since much of the settlement of mats on deep compressible soils is due to consolidation. However, the decreasing trend is not as sharp as those suggested by Terzaghi eqs. In this regard, it is an important issue to select an appropriate equivalent KS value in the structural design of mat foundations.
According to the theory of elasticity, the response of an elastic body to a load may be characterized by at least two parameters, such as modulus of elasticity and Poisson’s ratio. The top layer is a fill of about 0.
It was decided to lower the water table, by pumping, to below the depth of the plate during the test to provide a desirable working environment.
Figure 1 shows a geologic map and profile of the Taichung Basin. Note that reseating of each plate before loading was necessary, as the three plates were placed at different locations.
Various ranges of KS values have also been proposed by other engineers Bowles ; Das Subgrade reaction in mat foundation design. Design of reaction anchors The first step in the design of reaction anchors was to estimate the ultimate bearing capacity of the plate.
The bottom layer is a gravelly cobble deposit, occasionally with thin layers of sand. Ruler is approximately 30 cm long. Study of field direct shear tests in terrace deposits and Toukoshan conglomerate formation. Using a factor of safety of 1.
The secondary reaction beam, measured at 9 m by 1. Soil profile of the test site. Soil samples taken from the test pit were sieved through a set of sieves ranging in size from Based on Hansen’s formula, the ultimate bearing capacity was about kN t.
Concrete International, 13 4: While the importance of engineering geology is well recognized, the results of plate-load tests in the present study contribute to the understanding of the load-bearing characteristics of gravelly cobble deposits.
However, the asrm approach of doubling the KS value along the c1194-94 of the mat may not yield a satisfactory result Horvath The main reaction beam was capable of supporting a maximum load of 11 kN t. Principles of foundation engineering. The west boundary of the basin is the Tatu Terrace, and the east boundary is the Taiwan Western Foothills.
The qu values of the 0. In Proceedings, use of in situ tests in geotechnical engineering. Before applying the loads, the pressure gauge and the dial gauge were set to zero.
Axtm Tatu Terrace is mainly composed of Pleistocene sandstone and mudstone. When in doubt, a parametric study should be conducted to evaluate the effect of the uncertainty of the KS values on the mat design.
The geologic formation of the gravelly cobble deposit makes it very difficult to obtain large undisturbed samples for laboratory testing. Use of a single parameter such as the modulus of subgrade reaction to characterize the response of a soil to an applied load is thus an oversimplified concept.
However, the load tests did result in an important finding: For foundations on clays, the following relationship is generally accepted: The second layer, from 0.

In the second stage, the load increment is measured by the pressure gauge of the high-capacity jack system. Each reaction anchor consisted of 12 steel bars. The Western Foothills are mainly composed of Miocene to Pleistocene sandstone and shale strata. Relationship between modulus of subgrade reaction and plate diameter.
