A REVIEW OF THE MOST RECENT THEORIES FOR ESTIMATING SETTLEMENTS OF FOUNDATIONS ON COHESIONLESS SOILS

A CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF FOUR THEORIES IS GIVEN WHICH WERE DEVELOPED FOR USE IN ESTIMATING THE SETTLEMENTS OF FOUNDATIONS ON COHESIONLESS SOILS. WHILE IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE TERZAGHI-BUISSMAN EQUATION IS STILL THE MOST RELIABLE, IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE OTHER ONES PRESENTED SHOULD BE TRIED OUT IN PRACTICE SO THAT THEIR RELIABILITIES CAN BE MORE CONVINCINGLY ASSESSED. /LCPC/RRL/
