Abstract: The ultimate uplift capacity of augered footings in relatively insensitive and intact clays is computed on the basis of the undrained shear strength of clay. Fissured clays, which may be the result of surface desiccation or preconsolidation, give different values of strength according to the type of test and size of specimen used. The actual strength mobilized in this type of clay under uplift loads was determined by a number of full-scale tests performed on both belled and straight-sided footings. These test…
