Unformatted text preview: stress levels, elastic theory gives satisfactory estimates of Pi-o Uniformly Loaded Flexible Footing A flexible loaded area deforms into a dish shape, producing a uniform reaction (e.g. a tank). The settlement, pi, under the corner of a flexible rectangular loading is one half of the settlement at the center. Uniform Contact Pressure, q o Rigid Footing A rigid loaded area has a uniform displacement with a contact pressure which increases from the center to a large stress at the edge. The settlement, Pi, under any point of a rigid loaded area is the same. Q Contact Pressure, q Pi...
