A horizontal layer of clay of saturated unit weight 22kN/m3 is 8.0m thick and is

overlain by a 4.0m thick granular layer (unit weight 19.5kN/m 3). Ground-water level

occurs at a depth of 2.0m below the surface of the granular material.

A consolidation test carried out an a sample of the clay gave the following results:

After the swelling stage, the moisture content of the sample was determined as 27.2%.

If the particle specific gravity is 2.68, obtain the void ratio / effective stress plot for

the sample. A foundation is to be constructed on the surface of the sand and it is

expected that this will subject the centre of the clay layer to a vertical stress increase

of 75kN/m2. Determine the consolidation settlement of the clay.

2.

The readings below were obtained from an oedometer test on a specimen of saturated

clay. The load was held constant for 24 hours before the addition of the next

increment.

At the end of the last load increment, the load was removed and the

sample allowed to swell for 24-hours, at the end of which time its thickness was

determined as 17.92mm and its moisture content found to be 31.8%. The specific

gravity of the soil was 2.66.

(c) Use these data to obtain the ultimate consolidation settlement of a 4.0m thick

layer of this material when subjected to an average effective stress 220 to

250kN/m . A clay layer of thickness 2.0m is located at a depth -10.00m below ground

level (0.00m) and rockhead is located at -12.00m. Ground water level occurs at

-2.00m; the saturated unit weights of the granular soil and the clay are, respectively,

19kN/m3 and 22kN/m3, the granular soil can be assumed to be fully saturated above

permanent water table.

(i)

calculate the elastic settlement of the clay layer below the plan centre of the

foundation given that Eu = 12MN/m2 .

(ii)

by considering the stress increase at the centre of the clay layer, calculate the

ultimate consolidation settlement of the clay layer below the plan centre, given

that the moisture content of the clay is 35% and the specific gravity of the clay

particles is 2.65. Cc for the clay is 0.40.

important building which is about 100 years old. It has a foundation plan area of 20m

15m with foundations at a depth of 1.5m below existing ground level (taken as 0.00

-7.50m to -13.50m

sat = 22kN/m3

The granular material above water table can be regarded as saturated. You estimate

that the foundation exerts a (gross) contact pressure of 230kN/m 2. Representative

samples from the clay layer were tested in an oedometer and gave the following

results shown below.

It is expected that pumping operations will lower ground water level from its existing

level (-1.75m) to -7.00m. Assuming 1-D consolidation conditions prevail, determine

the consolidation setttlement that will occur at the centre of the building if the water

table remains at its new level.
