Based on static Melan shakedown theorem, an elastic-plastic finite element method is presented to analyze the shakedown of saturated undrained foundation due to varied combined loadings, and the shakedown loadings under different patterns of loading combination are compared. At the same time, a comparison is given between the shakedown failure envelop under varied combined loading and the failure envelop of ultimate bearing capacity under static equilibrium, and it is found that the shakedown loading under varied combined loading is less than the ultimate bearing capacity under combined loading.
