Calculate the required diameter (feet) of a round, flexible footing using an allowable unit end bearing of 3 tsf (round up to the nearest whole foot). Next, calculate the immediate settlement (inches) under the center and edge of this footing if the underlying soil is a sandy clay with E = 200,000 psi and = 0.4. 2. Repeat problem 1 for a square , flexible footing. Calculate the immediate settlement at the center and a corner. Which footing (square or round) will experience the greatest differential settlement? 3. For the two-layer subsurface profile shown below, calculate the immediate settlement (inches) under the center of the flexible storage tank full of water: 4.
