Homework 9 CEG 3011 Spring 2010 Soil Mechanics Problem 1 The following Figure shows a soil profile. The uniformly distributed load on the ground surface is σ . 1. Estimate the primary settlement of clay layer given these values 2. How much consolidation will occur in 1 year if Cv = 0.0025m 2 /day 3. How long will take for 0.1 m of consolidation to occur H 1 = 1.5 m, H 2 = 2.0 m, H 3 = 2.5 m Sand: e = 0.62, G s = 2.62 Clay: e = 0.98, G s = 2.75, LL = 50 σ = 110 kN/m 2 σ Groundwater table H 1 H 2 H 3 Clay Void ratio = e Normally consolidated Sand Sand Sand
