Unformatted text preview: Reading Beds, ' v (average) = (95 kPa)/2 = 47.5 kPa = 47.5 kPa 10 m 40 MPa = 11.875 mm Total ultimate settlement = 4.6 mm + 11.9 mm = 16.5 mm (iii) Calculate the time factor T = c v .t/d 2 after t = 18 months: The Woolwich & Reading Beds have twoway drainage, so drainage path length d = 10 m 2 = 5 m. Hence T = 4 m 2 /year 1.5 year 52 m 2 = 0.24 4.18, = / ult = 0.58 Hence the settlement after 18 months = 4.55 mm (Thanet Sands) + (0.58 11.875 mm) (Woolwich & Reading Beds) = 11.4 mm...
