## Question:

The soil mass in Figure P9-13 is loaded by a force transmitted through a circular footing as shown. Determine the stresses in the soil. Compare the values of σ_{r} using an axisymmetric model with the σ_{y} values using a plane stress model. Let E = 3000 psi and v = 0.45 for the soil mass.
