ps3 Summary of Schmertmann Strain Factor Method (CPT): Divide the soil profile into n homogeneous (constant E) layers. Using the depth distribution appropriate for the footing, calculate the strain influence factor for each layer and use the following summation to calculate the settlement: where: C, = correction factor for depth of embedment = 1- 0.5(~)" 0.5 .6.0' z C 2 = correction factor for secondary creep settlement = 1+0.210g" (t",) 0.1 6cr'z = net foundation pressure increase at footing bottom = (q - cr'o) 0'0 = effective stress at footing bottom before any excavation I" = Strain influence factor at mid-height of each sub-layer from idealized distribution shown below Ei = Young's modulus for each sub-layer (estimated from CPT) = 2.5 qCi for axisymmetric footings (UB = 1)
