Abstract

The applications of bearing capacity equation to evaluate bearing capacity characteristics of shallow foundation during earthquake are discussed. An equivalent dynamic model of ground is determined by horizontal seismic coefficient due to maximum inertia force of superstructure. The bearing capacity coefficient decrease according to inclinations of load and ground based on bearing capacity test results. The effect of load inclination is found to be greater than that of ground inclination in regards to reduction rate of bearing capacity.
