I am getting stuck in this part of my studies. I am not sure how to differentiate between what questions they might ask in the AM about soil consolidation and foundation settlement. Will they just mix these two up? or will the foundation settlement not require to calculate soil consolidation within the settlement calculations. The NCEES practice exam just highlights consolidation as a quantity problem and settlement as a conceptual question. There is little information on the CERM about how to differentiate between these two as well just compression and recompression idexes and over consolidation index with the consolidation equations. Also are there any good reference for immediate settlement and secondary compression settlement? I am stuck in studying these.
