A phenomenological model of soil behaviour is postulated which reproduces the commonly-observed characteristics of A linear creep strain versus log time relationship and which appears to fit the observed undrained and drained behaviour of soil in triaxial tests. The model is used in an approximate analysis of the complete time-settlement behaviour of a circular footing on a clay layer. Theoretical solutions are presented to illustrate the effects on footing behaviour of the soil parameters and the ratio of footing radius to layer depth. Comparisons are then made between the results of a series of model footing tests and the behaviour predicted by the theory and reasonable agreement is found.(a) /TRRL/
