Correction Factor for Stiffness of Bearing Stratum Cb

The values of the factor Cb are generally presented as a function of the ratio of modulus of elasticity of soil at the pile base and secant modulus of 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.
