FORECASTING THE SETTLEMENT OF SOFT SATURATED SOIL

PROGNOZIROVANIE OSADOK SLABYKH VODONASYSHCHENNYKH GRUNTOV

The author describes an approximate method of calculating the settlement of soft saturated soil, which is based on a rational function. The application of this function demonstrates that the parameters used are generally variables. To calculate settlement duration, a single consolidation parameter need be known. The processing of the results of the consolidation of embankments on compressible soil shows how the consolidation parameter varies as a function of deformation and load characteristics. An example of calculation is appended.
