Foundation Engineering

CLASS EXAMPLE

A flexible concrete raft foundation is founded at a depth of 1.0m in a deep deposit of

saturated clay as shown below (all dimensions in metres). The foundation is subjected to

uniform pressures of 250kN/m2 and 150kN/m2 over the shaded area and unshaded areas

respectively. Using Fadum's chart, obtain the intensity of vertical stress induced at a point in

the soil 3.0m below point A. The saturated unit weight of the clay can be taken as 20kN/m 3.

Consolidated undrained triaxial tests were carried out on representative samples of the clay

and gave the following results:

Using these data, determine the elastic settlement likely to occur at point A.
