Problems onSettlement
 
Problem # 01
A reinforced concrete foundation of dimensions 20mx 40m exerts a uniform pressure of 200 kN/m

Problem # 02
A soft, normally consolidated clay layer is
15m
 thick with a natural moisture content of 
45 %
. The clay has a saturated unit weight of 
172
kN/m
3
,a particle specific gravity of 
2.68
and a liquid limitof 
65%
. A foundation load will subject the centre of the layer to a vertical stress increase of 
10
kN/m
2
.Determine an approximate value for thesettlement of the foundation, if ground water levelis at the surface of the clay.
