Civil EngineeringQ&A Library9.16 The soil profile and the loading condition are given in the following figure. Total new footing stress including the foundation at z = 2 m is 400 kN/m2. The soil profile has a rather thick clay layer (15 m) so that the layer should be divided into several sublayers to estimate the consolidation settlement adequately. Divide it into three sublay- ers and compute the primary consolidation settlement at the mid- point of each layer, and then make a summation for the total final settlement. Assume that the clay is normally consolidated and use Newmark's rectangular footing solution for the stress increment computation. New footing load 4 m x4 m square footing Sand Ydry = 19.0 kN/m3 -W.T.
