What are the three components of the equation – what do they physically represent – internal cohesion (Nc), overburden effect (Nq) and internal friction/confinement (Nγ) What are the main assumptions - smooth, infinite, flexible strip foundation on a semi-infinite, weightless, plastic medium What case is the equation for – General Shear (dense, stiff soils) and what happens when the soils is less dense or looser?
