SETTLEMENT INFLUENCE-VALUE CHART FOR RIGID CIRCULAR FOUNDATIONS

THE PAPER PRESENTS A SETTLEMENT INFLUENCE-VALUE CHART FOR HOMOGENEOUS, ELASTIC MEDIUM APPLICABLE TO RIGID CIRCULAR FOUNDATIONS LAID ON THE GROUND SURFACE. THE CHART, WHICH IS BASED ON BOUSSINESQ'S THEORY OF ELASTICITY PERTAINING TO ELASTIC DEFORMATION OF AN IDEAL, ELASTIC, HEMISPATIAL MEDIUM FROM A RIGID SURFACE LOADING, IS SUITABLE FOR QUICK ASSESSMENT OF UNIFORM, ELASTIC SETTLEMENT FROM A CIRCULAR SYMMETRICALLY AND STATICALLY LOADED, RIGID CIRCULAR FOUNDATION LAID ON THE BOUNDARY SURFACE OF HOMOGENEOUS, HEMISPATIAL MEDIUM (MONOLAYER). A NUMERICAL EXAMPLE OF SETTLEMENT CALCULATION IS USED TO DEMONSTRATE THE ROUTINE OF THE EASY-TO-USE CHART PREPARED FOR POISSON'S NUMBERS. IT MAY ALSO BE USED FOR EVALUATION OF APPROXIMATIVE SETTLEMENT OF A MULTILAYERED SOIL SYSTEM UNDER A RIGID CIRCULAR FOUNDATION. DERIVATIONS OF THE SETTLEMENT EQUATION, SETTLEMENT VALUE EQUATION, AND SETTLEMENT VALUE CHARTS ARE EXPLAINED. THE METHOD OF SUCCESSIVE "DISPLACEMENT-DIFFERENCE STEPS" AND THE METHOD OF "EQUIVALENT LAYERS", WHICH MAY BE USED FOR CALCULATING THE APPROXIMATE TOTAL ELASTIC SETTLEMENT OF A MULTILAYERED SOIL SYSTEM, ARE DETAILED.
