Effect of Confinement of Sand using Skirts on its Bearing Capacity
Abhijeet Shukla,  Dr. J. P. Tegar
The problems related with bearing capacity of soil in shallow foundation have been widely elaborated in the field of Geotechnical engineering.The bearing capacity of footings on sandy soil may be improved by using skirts. The skirts are considered to constrain the soil which results in enhancement of the bearing capacity of soil. Skirted footings are used as alternatives to deep foundations in soil with low strength.
This paper is concerned with the evaluation of change in bearing capacity of sand after confinement through a set of cylindrical skirts of pvc pipes. Also, the effect of varying moisture content on the confined sand is investigated. The load-settlement relationships were plotted for several tests conducted in the laboratory on various combinations of diameter and height of skirts.
Keywords- Bearing capacity, sand, skirt, skirted footing, confinement of sand, moisture content
