Re: Modulus of Subgrade Reaction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thor,

according to a '79 textbook on peat foundations, the deformation modulus E is as follows:

For upland peat - 0.1 to 0.15 MPa
for lowland peat - 0.12 to 0.21 MPa

Shear modulus G is 0.004 to 0.016 and 0.008 to 0.022 respectively.
I saw an even more detailed description somewhere, I'll post it if I find it.
