Direct method for determination of shallow foundation settlements

Ivana Lukić Kristić, Vlasta Szavits-Nossan, Predrag Miščević

Abstract

A direct procedure for determining settlement of shallow foundations, combining the modified hyperbolic function for nonlinear stress and strain ratio with correlations from penetration test results, is presented in the paper. The 10% load, i.e. 1% of settlement to equivalent foundations diameter ratio, is used in correlations. Laboratory tests are not needed in this novel procedure, which is a considerable advantage for coarse-grained soils. A very good correspondence was established between the load-based settlement curve calculated in this way, and the settlements measured in sand during load testing of five square foundations of variable size.

Keywords
