Abstract


The results of field studies of elastic deformations in the footing base, composed of loses soils. Elastic deformation is the result of compression partially bound water at the contacts between the mineral particles, the value of which depends on the wetness soil environment. It was found that deformation depends on the molecular moisture capacity of the soil while elastic settlement increases in proportion to pressure
