6.1 A concentrated load of 1000 kN is applied to the ground surface. What is the vertical stress

increment due to the load at a depth of 5 m directly below the load?

6.2 A concentrated load of 1000 kN is applied to the ground surface. What is the vertical stress

increment due to the load at a point 4.5 m below the ground surface at a horizontal

distance of 3 m from the line of the concentrated load?

6-3. A 4-m by 3-m rectangular area carrying a uniform load of 250 kN/m2 is applied to the

ground surface. Determine the vertical stress increment due to this uniform load at a depth

of 5 m below the ground surface by the approximate method (i.e., 2:1 slope method).

6.4 A rectangular area 2 m by 3 m carrying a uniform load of 195 kN/m2 is applied to the

ground surface. Determine the vertical stress increment due to the uniform load at (a) 1, (b)

3, and (c) 5 m below the area by the approximate method.

6.5 A circular area carrying a uniform load of 225 kN/m2 is applied to the ground surface. The

area's radius is 4 m. What is the vertical stress increment due to this uniform load (a) at a

point 6 m below the area's center, and (b) at a point 6 m below the ground surface at a

horizontal distance of 2 m from the area's center?

6.6 Soil with a unit weight of 16.38 kN/m3 is loaded on the ground surface by a uniformly

distributed load of 250 kN/m2 over a circular area 3 m in diameter. Determine (a) the

vertical stress increment due to the uniform load, and (b) the total vertical pressure at a

depth of 3 m under the edge of the circular area.

6.7 A 2-m by 3-m rectangular area carrying a uniform load of 300 kN/m2 is applied to the

ground surface. What is the vertical stress increment due to the uniform load at a depth of

3.75 m below the corner of the rectangular loaded area?

6.8 A 4-m by 4-m square area carrying a uniform load of 250 kN/m2 is applied to the ground

surface. Find the vertical stress increment due to the load at a depth of 12.5 m below the

center of the loaded area.

6.9 A 2-m by 2-m square footing is located 1.8 m below the ground surface and carries a load

of 1000 kN. Determine the net vertical stress increment due to the uniform load at a depth

of 4 m below the center of the footing (see Figure 6.17).

Figure 6.17

6.10 The L-shaped area shown in Figure 6-18 carries a 100 kN/m2 uniform load. Find the

vertical stress increment due to the structure load at a depth of 6 m (a) below corner A, and

(b) below corner E.

Figure 6.18

6.11 The square area ABCD shown in Figure 6-19 carries a 125 kN/m2 uniform load. Find

the vertical stress increment due to the exerted load at a depth of 6 m (a) below point G,

and (b) below point/.

Figure 6.19

6.12 Soil with a unit weight of 19.65 kN/m3 is loaded on the ground surface by a strip load 1.5

m wide. The strip load is 365 kN/m of wall length. Determine (a) the vertical stress

increment due to the strip load, and (b) the total pressure—both at a point 3 m below the

center of the strip load.

6.13 Moist sand having a unit weight of 18.60 kN/m3 is to be excavated to a depth of 5 m to

accommodate a rectangular building 58 m long by 38 m wide. Find the reduction in vertical

pressure, due to removal of the sand from the excavated area, at one corner of the building

at a depth 15 m below the original ground surface.

weight of 18.5 kN/m2. A 10-m by 7.5-m foundation is to be built at floor level (i.e., at the top

of the fill) and is to support a total structure load of 7500 kN. Find the net stress increase

that will result 3 m below the original ground surface directly beneath the foundation's

center.
