CLASS EXAMPLE

The sequence of strata at a site is shown in the Figure below. The granular soil above

the water-table is 30% saturated and a consolidation test on the clay gave the

following results:

Applied pressure

(kN/m2)

Sample thickness

(mm)

50

100

200

400

19.00

18.60

18.40

18.10

17.90

Using the stress-dispersion method with a dispersion angle of 30 from the vertical,

and by considering stresses at the centre of the clay layer, calculate the consolidation

settlement of the clay.

For the clay:

For the granular:

Gs = 2.65 and e = 0.5

where w = 9.81kN/m3
