Modulus of Subsoil Reaction Specified by Dilatometric Test (DMT)

Modulus of subsoil reaction kh [MN/m3] is determined by the following formula:

where:

kh

-

modulus of subsoil reaction [MN/m3]

MDMT

-

constrained modulus obtained from DMT [MPa]

B

-

characteristic length of the sheeting structure (coefficient of reduction) [1 rm]

Values of coefficient B are depending on the depth of the excavation H [m], constrained modulus MDMT [MPa], and spacing of props.
