Example 11: Ultimate bearing capacity for a footing on layered subsoil

altDescription of the problem

To verify the ultimate bearing capacity calculated by ELPLA, the results of an example in DIN 4017 (Example 2, page 9) for determining the ultimate bearing capacity of a footing on layered subsoil are compared with those obtained by ELPLA.

A rectangular footing of 4.0 [m] × 5.0 [m] on layered subsoil is considered. Footing dimensions and soil layers under the footing with soil constants are shown in Figure 14. It is required to determine the ultimate bearing capacity of the soil under the footing.
