Re: Differential Settlement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A number of years ago, after much questioning of a geotech about what his 
differential settlement number meant (without a distance given) it turned out 
that the number was actually a tolerance, i.e., the settlements reported 
could be +/- the differential settlement number.
