Question

Compute the expected settlement of the layer of clay when the values of void ratio and liquid limit of the clay are 0.97 and 32%, respectively. The average increase in stress at the center of the clay stratum is 195kN/m2. Take ??=135.5 kN/m2.

Answer #1

Compute the expected settlement of the layer of clay when the
values of void ratio and liquid limit of the clay are 1.02 and 42%,
respectively. The average increase in stress at the center of the
clay stratum is 135kN/m2. Take po=185.5
kN/m2

Consider a 20 foot thick saturated clay that has a sand layer
above it and an impermeable rock layer below it. The clay layer has
an initial effective stress at its midpoint of 3145
lbs/ft2. Due to the presence of a
large water tank on the surface, the stress is increased by 710
lbs/ft2 at the midpoint of the clay layer. How much
total settlement from primary consolidation is expected? Provide
your answer in inches.
Soil properties: Compression index = .324,...

Consider a clay layer that is 1 m thick. The clay has a
compression index of 0.35, a swell index of 0.07, a permeability of
4 x 10-7 cm/sec, a preconsolidation pressure of 172 kPa and a
coefficient of consolidation of 2.7 x 10-4 cm2/min. The initial
effective stress at the midpoint of the layer is 140 kPa, and the
soil has a void ratio of 1.01. The stress is increased to 200 kPa.
The soil is drained above and...

Using the data in Textbook Problem 8.8:
a. Plot the vertical effective consolidation stress versus void
ratio on both arithmetic and semi-log graphs. For the arithmetic
graph, constrain the vertical axes to 0.55 and 0.95; and the
horizontal to 0 to 1,500 kPa; for the semi-log graph, use the same
vertical axis constraints, but use 10 kPa and 10,000 kPa to ease
interpretation. Plot the data points only, and draw in a smooth
curve by hand. Plot each graph on...

Repeat problem 8.2 using Schmertmann’s method, compute the
settlement of this footing att = 50 years. (divide the soil into 6
layers, 3 ft thickness for each layer)
8.2) A 250-k column load is to be supported on a 9 ft square
footing embedded 2 ft below the ground surface. The underlying soil
is a silty sand with an average N60 of 32 and a unit weight of 129
lb/ft3. The groundwater table is at a depth of 35 ft....
