Transient Response of a Shallow Foundation on Unsaturated Soil

Application ID: 91731


In this example, the transient response of a shallow foundation resting on an unsaturated soil stratum is investigated. The changes in pore suction due to water infiltration and evaporation is investigated using the Extended Barcelona Basic soil model. The results show the deformation of the clay stratum due to footing pressure and changes in pore suction.

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