Based on the analysis of the load simulation test of sand-shale interbed foundation with different physical and mechanical parameters of mudstone, the influence degree of bearing capacity and physical and mechanical parameters of sand-shale interbed foundation is obtained. The influence of mechanical parameters on bearing capacity of sand-mudstone interbedded foundation is found through the simulation of foundation load test of sand-mudstone interbedded foundation with different mechanical parameters of mudstone.
