Abstract

Monotonic and shaking table tests are performed using strip footings placed near a model slope. Test results indicate that footing restraint conditions affect the seismic response of near-slope footings, in terms of amplification factor and critical peak ground acceleration (PGA). The theoretical seismic bearing capacity correction factor (ηγe) vs. seismic coefficient (kh) relationships based on pseudo-static methods are in good agreement with the experimental values of ηγe provided that correction factors for load inclination, load eccentricity, footing set-back are accounted for. Furthermore, a correct empirical relationship between kh and PGA is vital in applying theoretical ηγe in earthquake engineering practices.
