SOME IMPLICATIONS OF VISCOELASTIC SUBGRADE BEHAVIOR

THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL VISCOELASTIC DISPLACEMENT EQUATIONS FOR A VOIGT SOLID ARE APPROACHED ON A NUMERICAL BASIS TO EXAMINE THE EFFECT OF VISCOSITY ON THE LOAD-SETTLEMENT-TIME RELATION IN AN IDEAL SOIL. CURVES INDICATING THE VISCOSITY EFFECT ON SURFACE SETTLEMENT AND DISPLACEMENT WITHIN THE SOIL MASS AS A FUNCTION OF TIME FOR AN APPLIED SURFACE LOAD ARE PRESENTED. IN ADDITION, THE GENERALITY OF THE METHOD FOR APPROACHING MIXED BOUNDARY CONDITIONS IS DEMONSTRATED BY THE DETERMINATION OF HEAVE IN THE BOTTOM OF AN EXCAVATION DUE TO AN APPLIED SURFACE LOAD. /AUTHOR/
