Description: Technical Report
Abstract: The CSANDSET computer program calculates the settlement of shallow footings on sand from 15 different methods. This report provides a user's guide for this program and a theoretical section discussing aspects of sand settlement computations. Factors presented include the SPT blowcount and its correction, groundwater and embedment corrections, and elastic and empirical types of settlement methods. Each of the 15 settlement procedures is presented with a brief background summary and all related equations. Examples of hand-calculated settlement by all the methods are shown in Appendix A and used for program verification.
