Settlement

Recommended Posts

I got an answear of 8.1 inches but correct settlement is 7.3 inches.

any clarification will be appreciated.

Thanks

S = H del(e)/(1+e0) = 108x0.25/2.21 = 12.217 in

At 60% consolidation, s = 7.33 inch

Why were the increase in vertical pressure terms ignored?

Wouldn't the equation using these terms need to be used?

Sc=(HcCc/1+e0)log(p'0+del'0/p'0)
