Axisymmetric fundamental solutions for a finite layer with impeded boundaries
- 38 Downloads
Axisymmetric fundamental solutions that are applied in the consolidation calculations of a finitecaly clay layer with impeded boundaries were derived. Laplace and Hankel integral transforms were utilized with respect to time and radial coordinates, respectively in the analysis. The derivation of fundamental solutions considers two boundary-value problems involving unit point loading and ring loading in the vertical. The solutions are extended to circular distributed and strip distributed normal load. The computation and analysis of settlements, vertical total stress and excess pore pressure in the consolidation layer subject to circular loading are presented.
