INFLUENCE OF LATERAL MOVEMENT IN CLAY UPON SETTLEMENTS IN SOME TEST AREAS

When settlements of a soil area exposed to a load are discussed, the influence of lateral movements in the soil is often neglected. In the case of a relatively small loaded area on a soft soil these movements may however by important. Loading tests are reported where lateral displacement of the soil has been observed. Below a gravel embankment it was found that in the earlier stages the major part of the settlements was due to lateral movements of the soil at the boundaries of the loaded area. /Author/
