Rectangular Load Soil Stress Tool
Geometry of Uniform Load (plan view)
This tool is for calculating vertical stress increment in soil induced by the applied uniform load, as shown in the figure above.
The soil layer is assumed as homogeneous, elastic and isotropic.
For the Boussinesq method, the vertical stress increment calculated is for the position at the depth z below the point P (x
For the approximate 2:1 method, the vertical stress increment calculated is only for the position at the depth z below the center point (0,0).
All the input parameters except the coordinates of point P should be positive.
For "nan", "0" or "inf" displayed in Results, please check your input parameters.
Welcome! Please input the parameters!
