given earlier. The same equations can be modified to give equations for cohesionless soil (for c = 0)
and cohesive soils (for Ø = 0) as follows.
It may be noted here that for c = 0, the value of Nc = 0, and for Ø=0, the value of NC = 5.7 for a strip footing and Nq = 1.
a) Strip Footing
b) Square Footing
c) Circular Footing
d) Rectangular Footing
