Correction Factor for Stiffness of Bearing Stratum Rb

The values of the correction factor Rb are generally presented as a function of the ratio of modulus of elasticity of pile and secant modulus of soil at the pile base and the surrounding soil (Eb /Es) for various pile-stiffness factor K and various pile length to pile diameter ratios (l/d). These graphs are implemented in the program in a digital format.
