Chandrashekhara, K and Murugappan, KR (1992) A photoelastic approach to framed structure-foundation beam-soil interaction. In: Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design, 27 (4). pp. 245-247.Full text not available from this repository.
The interaction of a framed structure with a foundation beam resting on an elastic medium, representing the soil, has been studied using the photoelastic method. The contact pressure distribution, the fibre stress in the foundation beam and frame structure, as well as the stresses in the elastic medium, have been obtained. These have been compared with theoretical results obtained by idealizing the soil as (a) elastic half plane, and (b) elastic half space. It is shown that the photoelastic method can provide an easy solution to this type of problem if the soil can be idealized as an elastic continuum.
