    Abstract: Results of parametric study to investigate the applicability of finite element method for analyzing industrial machinery foundation on pre stressed-reinforced embankment over soft soil are investigated in this paper. Model tests were carried out using model footing of 1 m in diameter and geogrids. Particular emphasis is paid on the reinforcement co... Show More
