Soil properties

Elastic settlement and consolidation settlement can be determined using their actual properties, where the soil properties of the individual layers are defined by:

- Modulus of Compressibility Es (1/mv)

- Modulus of Elasticity E

- Compression Index Cc.

This option enables ELPLA to analyze rafts on consolidated clay deposits by the different calculation methods that are available in ELPLA, Figure B-4. Also the user doesn't need to convert a soil parameter to other. When defining soil properties by the Modulus of Elasticity E, the Poisson's ratio νs can be different for every layer.
