Many physical model tests have examined the performance of rocking foundations during cyclic and seismic loading. These tests varied in model size, testing equipment, superstructure properties, footing shape, supporting soil environment, and loading protocol. “FoRCy, Foundation Rocking database of Cyclic and Monotonic Loading” is a new database (published at https://datacenterhub.org/), summarizing the results of monotonic and slow-cyclic loading tests of rocking foundations. The database consists of columns identifying testing equipment and facility, soil, superstructure, and system properties, as well as loading protocol and results. The database contains 456 records (rows), each one being unique in either model configuration or loading amplitude. To illustrate its value, this article shows correlations between (1) settlement, rotation, and factor of safety with respect to bearing capacity and (2) moment and cumulative rotation for shallow footings. Data indicate that the rotation required to mobilize the moment capacity is surprisingly constant (about 0.01 radians) for a wide range of experiments.

Abstract

Many physical model tests have examined the performance of rocking foundations during cyclic and seismic loading. These tests varied in model size, testing equipment, superstructure properties, footing shape, supporting soil environment, and loading protocol. “FoRCy, Foundation Rocking database of Cyclic and Monotonic Loading” is a new database (published at https://datacenterhub.org/), summarizing the results of monotonic and slow-cyclic loading tests of rocking foundations. The database consists of columns identifying testing equipment and facility, soil, superstructure, and system properties, as well as loading protocol and results. The database contains 456 records (rows), each one being unique in either model configuration or loading amplitude. To illustrate its value, this article shows correlations between (1) settlement, rotation, and factor of safety with respect to bearing capacity and (2) moment and cumulative rotation for shallow footings. Data indicate that the rotation required to mobilize the moment capacity is surprisingly constant (about 0.01 radians) for a wide range of experiments.
