Shallow Foundation on Unsaturated Soil

Application ID: 90221


In this example, a settlement and heave analysis of a shallow foundation resting on an unsaturated soil stratum is investigated with the Modified Cam-Clay and Extended Barcelona Basic soil models. The effect of pore suction due to movements in the phreatic line and the resulting settlement and heave on the clay stratum are shown.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
