Unformatted text preview: Estimate the immediate settlement under point A at the surface of the soil. (assume µ=0.5). 3. It is proposed to construct a reinforced concrete foundation, length 30 m and width 10 m on the top of the layer of clay of thickness 20 m which is having a saturated unit weight of 18.5kN/m3. The uniform foundation pressure = 200kPa. Determine the total settlement at the centre of the foundation (Assume E= 32.5 MPa; µ=0.5; m v = 7.6x10-5 m 2 /kN) 50 m 80 m 150 m 50 m A...
