Unformatted text preview: for Boussinesq vs. Westergaard solutions. Boussinesq is conservative (greater stress) at centerline. Westergaard was developed for stratified deposits (alternating layers of soil). a Example 1: 5 ft x 5 ft square footing, 30 ton load => q = 30/(5x5) = 1.2 tsf tJ Find Boussinesq I1crv at a depth of 10ft, on the centerline and 15 ft from it.
