# Question A clay layer of 3 m thick has Cu-60 kN/mº and unit weight y = 19.0 kN/m'. The clay layer is underlain by a weaker clay that have Cu-30 kN/m² and unit weight y - 18.0 kN/m to a large depth. A square footing of 2 mx 2m is placed at 1.5 m depth below the ground level. Determine the maximum column load that can be applied on the foundation, Use F.S - 3.
