    Abstract

    Model test results for the ultimate bearing capacity of rectangular surface foundations supported by geogrid-reinforced sand are presented. The tests were conducted using one type of sand at one relative density of compaction with only one type of geogrid. The length-to-width ratios of the model foundations were varied as 1, 2, 3, and ∞. Based on the model test results, the maximum required depths of reinforcement and the sizes of the geogrid layers to obtain maximum-bearing-capacity ratios have been presented.
