A clay layer of 10 m thickness underlies a sand layers of 10 m and overlies a previous layer. The sand layer carries a point load of 15 MN. Find how long would the clay take to settle 5.0 cm. The water table is located 5 m above the top of the clay layer. Given
e = 0.68, G = 2.75, LL = 58%, Cv = 3 10– 3 cm2/sec.
