    Abstract: Investigation of soil bearing capacity helps in determining the design of the foundation of any structure. The main parameters which are commonly associated with the determination of liquefaction potential are the saturated sand and silty soils. Therefore, the present study was focused on the investigation of soil bearing capacity at different loca... Show More
