NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF EMBANKMENTS OVER SOFT SOILS
A computer program, SSOILS, for analyzing displacements of embankments over soft soils is presented. Background development research and experimentation is discussed in the early chapters of the study. The final chapter (7) of the study is essentially self contained and is written for the user who must rely on standard soil tests to obtain input data for the computer program. Immediate (or initial) displacement, and time dependent displacement of settlement due to 2-D consolidation and creep can be accounted for by the program; however, users must become familiar with the program and interpretation of soil test data (for input data) in order to make good use of the program as an aid to the engineering analysis of embankment behavior over soft soils.
