Abstract

The method of derived distributions is used to develop a probabilistic model for predicting the total settlement in a compressible clay layer in terms of uncertain soil compressibility and loads. Graphs are developed to estimate the settlement ratio parameters in terms of the average dry density of the soil. The effect of the number of samples and the vertical and horizontal correlation of the density function of the settlement ratio is also evaluated.
