DF31 Failure Criteria ~, 0 many different criteria - seek to limit movement, guard against sudden failure o plunging failure is weak soil- mostly side shear (A) o sands densify with load, strong soils carry more load - gradual failure Applied Load, P Typical load·seulement curves: Curve A is typical in soft clayey soils (note plunge); and Curve B is typical of intermediate, stiff clay and sandy soils (ever-increasing load). Davisson Failure Criteria o most common, based on settle\ment control (use 8/30 instead of (0.15+8/120) if 8 > 24")
