Abstract: Results are presented for laboratory model tests conducted to determine the ultimate bearing capacity of an eccentrically loaded strip foundation supported by geogrid-reinforced sand. Only one type of sand at one relative density of compaction and one type of geogrid were used for the tests. The depth of the foundation was varied from zero to B (width of foundation). Based on the laboratory test results, an empirical relationship called reduction factor has been suggested that correlates the ratio of the ultimate bearing capacity of an eccentrically loaded foundation with that for a foundation where the load is applied centrally.
