RE: Modulus of Subgrade Reaction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a value of 75 lb/in^3 ... but on one site, for LL>50 and MC>28%, I
found values for (very) weak clays of 25 lb/in^3 ... but clay is not peat
...

I'm doing a model of an elastic beam on soil using an old version "pframe"
because it is idiot-proof and (yes, I'm an idiot) I need to check the
Winkler spring value that I'm using ... the lower the value the higher the
bending moments in the beam ...

Quite low and maybe sinking

Does anyone have an estimate for the MOSR for peat or peat-like soils?

Thanks
