The effect of preloading on the vertical settlement and bearing capacity of a circular skirted foundation was investigated as a function of relative preload and degree of consolidation by means of small strain finite element analyses. Significant gain in bearing capacity was observed for practical levels of preloads and duration of consolidation, offering an insight into potential efficiencies in foundation design.
