A wide loaded area carries a net uniformly distributed pressure q = 150 kPa on a soil profile that consists of 3 layers [4 m sand (20 kN/m³) over 2 m clay (18 kN/m³) over 3. m sand]. The water table is at the top of clay layer. The permeability of sand is very large. Cv = 0.50 m2/year; Calpha= 0.05; eo = 1.00. Compute the settlement due to secondary compression after 60 years.
