    Abstract: Extreme settlement can lead to serviceability complications during shallow foundations design. Since Settlement controls the principle design criterion when it is related to the bearing capacity of soils, the estimation of shallow foundation settlement above loose sandy soils is a highly complex problem. For important structures such as bridges, po... Show More
