[automatically translated] They report the results of experimental verification, conduct geotechnical centrifuge, the load limit, qlim, of shallow foundations resting on media containing a thin horizontal layer of low shear strength. The presence of the straterello affects strongly on the failure mechanism of the complex foundation-soil and on qlim value. The qlim is reduced significantly compared to the case of homogeneous soil as a function of position and the sheet resistance and the curve that describes the variation of qlim with the depth of the layer has a minimum at all accelerations explored. The results are in good agreement with the wide experimentation carried out in the gravity field models (1 g).
