AbstractThe author's recently published theory of the bearing capacity of foundations on level ground is extended and combined with the theory of slope stability. First, an analysis is given for the bearing capacity of foundations on the face of a slope and is evaluated for purely cohesive and cohesionlessmaterials. Secondly, the theory is extended to foundations on the top of a slope and is again evaluated for purely cohesive and cohesionless materials to illustrate the influence of various soil and foundation conditions.
