Subject : Foundation Engineering.

Please solve as soon as possible. thanks.

Question 1: For a square foundation that is \( B \times B \) in plan, \( D_{f}=1.5 \mathrm{~m} \), vertical gross allowable load \( Q_{\text {all }}=2400 \mathrm{kN}, \gamma=18 \mathrm{kN} / \mathrm{m}^{3}, \phi=26^{\circ}, c^{\prime}=20 \mathrm{kPa} \), and \( \mathrm{FS}=4 \). Determine the size of the foundation using the General Bearing Capacity Equation(Eq. 2.26).

Data Given : Square footing = B × B in plan , Df = 1.5 m , Qall = 2400 kN , ?= 26o , c' = 20 kPa F.S. = 4 Find : Size of the footing B Use Terzaghi's
