NF P94-261 (PMT)

Settlement of spread footing using PMTs according to NF P94-261 method is based on the formula:

where:

s

-

overall settlement

Ec, Ed

-

equivalent pressiometric modulus

α

-

rheological coefficient

q

-

stress in the footing bottom

λc, λd

-

shape coefficients

B

-

footing width

B0

-

reference width (0,6 m)

Equivalent pressiometric modulus Ec and Ed are determined according to the pressiometric modulus measured in layers of B/2 thickness below the foundation bottom.

Modul Ec is determined as an average pressiometric modulus in the first layer of B/2 thickness below the foundation bottom.

The determination of modulus Ed depends on the overall depth of PMT (dPMT).
