Figure 11.40 shows a soil profile. The uniformly distributed load on the ground surface is Ao. Given: Ao = 1000 lb/ft, H1 = 8 ft, H2 = 15 ft, and H3 = 17 ft. Also, Sand: Ydry = 110 lb/fl, Ysat = 115 lb/ft? Clay: ysat = 120 lb/ft’, LL = 50, e = 0.9 Estimate the primary consolidation settlement if a. The clay is normally consolidated b. The preconsolidation pressure is 2600 lb/f12 (Cs-Cc/6) 1 1 1 1 Groundwater table
