Given Ans 1.3 is correct. Ratio = strength of circular section / Strength of Square section. If We assumed Side or Dia. Is 4 cm. And Load P is the same, Then Ratio of ultimate stresses of circular to the square is; = (P/12.56) / (P/16). = P .16/P. 12.56. = 1.3. |

Area of circular footing = π/4 d2. = 0.785 d2. Area of square = d2(because d=l). Bearing capacity = load/area. Circular = load/0.785d2. Square. = load/d2. Ratio = load/0.785d2*d2/load. = 1/0.785, = 1.27. = 1.30. |
