The Effect of Water Table on Bearing Capacity
Soil is a universally occurring natural element formed due to continuous denudation of different sorts of rocks and minerals. Each type of soil inherits a lot of similar characteristics from its parent rock like chemical composition, physical appearance, colour, texture etc. In spite of these, there are yet a lot of other important characteristics that significantly comes into play in the construction sector and civil engineering. One such important factor is the bearing capacity of soil. Bearing capacity is affected by various other factors like depth of water table, dimensions of footing, type of loading etc.
