BC23 o Three CPT methods from Schmertmann's (1975, 1978) work at UF First calculate the average Cit in kgf/cm 2 over the depth range 0-1.5B below the footing. (Bowles would calculate Cic over the depth range 0.5B-1.1 B) (1 bar = 1.019 kgf/cm 2 = 100 kPa = 1.044 tsf) Method 1: Calculate Ny = N q = 1.25 Cic Method 2: Back figure ep from Ny or N q above and use ep with general BC equation Method 3: Equations based on work by Awkati (unpublished but oft repeated, 1970) valid for Df ~ 1.5 ft + B/2 if B < 3 ft and Dr ~ 4 ft if B ~ 3 ft cohesionless soils: qu = 28 - 0.0052 (300 - qc' kgf/cm 2 ) 1.5 strip footing (sands) qu = 48 - 0.0090 (300 - Cic' kgf/cm 2 ) 1.5 square footing cohesive soils (clays): qu = 2 +0.28qc' kgf/cm 2 strip footing qu = 5 + 0.34Cic' kgf/cm 2 square footing The determination of the ultfmatlt bOIring capICIty of.
