Amount of Settlement

Single layer 1-D compression Estimate:

Cc=1.0, eo=2.0, Ho=15m

Po = 7.5m*5 = 37.5 kPa

P_inc = 10m*18 = 180 kPa

Pf = Po+P_inc = 217.5 kPa

Sett = Ho*Cc/(1+eo)*log(Pf/Po) = 15000*0.254 = 3,817 mm

g layer

y computation

p

and it g

grossly

y under-estimate

This is a single

amount of settlements; but 3,817 mm >> 400 mm by MC Model, and

is much closer to 4,330 mm by HS Model

Thus HS Model gave realistic answer and MC Model is grossly

incorrect

63

Using same oedometer

parameters of Cc=1.0,

eo=2.0;;

UniSettle = 4428 mm

HS = 4350 mm

UniSettle 15-layer

computation gave same

results as Plaxis HS model

64

32

Lecture 6

SEP 2010

Conclusions

MC Model cannot be used for consolidation

analysis of soft soils

The linear elastic model in MC cannot predict

both the rate and amount of consolidation

settlements of highly nonlinear soft clays

The HS Model with equivalent oedometer

parameters will give very good predictions of

both rate and amount of consolidation

settlements
