CALCULATION OF ALLOWABLE S B C OF C- SOIL  

  AS PER IS : 1904 / 6403. 
( Actual Program is available in Super Civil CD. )

 PROGRAM INFO / LIMITATIONS.

This program calculates allowable safe bearing capacity of C- soil.
The program is not suitable for only cohesive soil ( = 0) .
Gross safe bearing capacity = Net safe bearing capacity + Over burden (density x     soil depth).
In case the S P T ( N' ) value is not given the program calculates the same from     available  value. When the S P T ( N ' ) value is given, program applies      correction factors to it & arrives at  corrected N value.
Some salient features of CODE are as under. 


MAXIMUM TOTAL PERMISSIBLE SETTLEMENT

ISOLATED FOUNDATION ON CLAY 65 MM 
ISOLATED FOUNDATION ON SAND 40 MM
RAFT FOUNDATION ON CLAY  65 MM TO 100 MM
RAFT FOUNDATION ON SAND 40 MM TO 65 MM 
NOTE: IN ORDER TO KEEP THE DIFFERENTIAL SETTLEMENT TO A BARE MINIMUM, IT IS PRUDENT TO RESTRICT THE TOTAL SETTLEMENT IN BUILDINGS TO 25 MM.
