Abstract

Foundation structures of reinforced concrete, testing their properties and modeling their behavior after loading is a wide area to research. Analysis of interaction between the subsoil and the foundation structures has been developed for many years. For the determination of stress in foundation structure is needed to determine the influence of the stiffness respectively pliability of subsoil to structural internal forces, and vice versa, how the stiffness of the foundation structure affects the resulting subsidence. Previous researches on loading of reinforced slabs have shown a number of phenomena significantly influencing their strength and behaviour. However, no general agreement is yet found on a physical theory (either in codes of practice or in design models) suitably describing the interaction between the subsoil and the foundation structures. Our aim is to implement several of experimental measurements, to create numerical models and modify the parameters of numerical models to better fit the facts. It will then be possible to design the foundation structures more efficiently, safer and cheaper.
