Question details

Question 3 [20 marks] A site consists of 3 m of gravelly sand m-17.0 kN/m) at the ground level underlain by 4 m of clay which is underlain by dense sand. Water table is at 3.0 m below the ground level. The properties of the clay are: moisture content = 26.0%; specific gravity of the soil grains 2.74; compression index-0.65; recompression index-0.06; and overconsolidation ratio 1.5 . C) If the ground level is raised by 2 m of compacted fill (7m-19.0 kN/m) what would be the consolidation settlement?
