Abstract: The analysis of stress within a body implies the determination at each point of the body of the magnitudes of nine stress components. In other words, it is the determination of the internal distribution of stresses. An alternative method used in stress analysis is the determination of the internal distribution of strains. The differences between kaolinite and smectite structures are notable, mainly as a result of the degree of weathering in the different compounds. Nevertheless, the kaolinite structure possesses great advantages in many processes due to its high chemical stability and low expansion coefficient. Bearing capacity factors are available in the literature for estimation of the load-carrying capacity of unreinforced and reinforced unpaved roads, i.e. for soil layers with a granular fill overlying soft soil. This paper present the the stress distribution on the kaolinite layer at the kaolinite-geotextile or kaolinitefurnace ash interface, it measured with increases in footing pressure in order to assess the load dispersion angle over the soil layer. The predicted load dispersion angle is then used to estimate the bearing capacity factors of the soil layer with increases in footing deformation. This paper also focus typical vertical stress distributions measured below the interface (on the top surface of the kaolin layer) for a fill thickness of 110 mm with different footing pressures.
