*Elastic Settlement-01: Settlement (rutting) of a truck tire. (Revision: Aug-08) You are required to move a 60-ton truck-mounted crane onto your construction site. The front wheels carry 20% of the load on tires inflated with 55 psi air pressure. Calculate the possible rutting depth to your temporary jobsite road built from an in- situ compacted medium sand. A surface SPT shows an N = 12 and the tire’s bearing area is roughly square. Estimate the depth of the rutting. Solution: Each front tire has a square bearing area of BxB such that: 2 2 2 o tire's load (0.5)(20%)(120,000 ) 218 14.8 tire pressure q (55 / ) lb B in B inches lb in == = = A rough estimate of the soil’s elastic modulus is E s = 14 N = 14(12) = 168 ksf . Since the sand is compacted, it is a dense sand, and the I z = ε is averaged to 0.3 throughout its depth to 2B = 2(14.8 inches) ~ 30 inches. Since the crane loads are on the surface and only for a few days, C 1 = C 2 = 1. Therefore, for the single layer of soil, the rutting is, 2 12 22 2 0.30 144 (1)(1)(55 )( )(30 ) 168 / 1,0 0. . 0 2 0 4 ⎛⎞ ∆= = × ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ o s lb in k CC q dz in E in k ft ft l inches of rutt b ing ε 232
*Elastic Settlement-02: Schmertmann method used for granular soils. (Revision: Aug-08) Estimate the settlement of a square footing placed on a fine, medium dense sand, embedded 4 ft below the ground surface, for long-term use. Use the Schmertmann method.
