Foundations are often placed near a proposed excavation site in urban areas and the evaluation of bearing capacity reduction due to the excavation effect is important for geotechnical engineers. This paper aims to estimate the three-dimensional (3D) effect of foundations located near a slope. FLAC3D is used to investigate this problem.
