THE SETTLEMENT ANALYSIS OF THE 2ND ORGANIZED INDUSTRIAL REGION (KONYA - TURKEY) CLAYS USING PLAXIS SOFTWARE
11th International Multidisciplinary Scientific GeoConference SGEM2011, www.sgem.org, SGEM2011 Conference Proceedings/ ISSN 1314-2704, June 20-25, 2011, Vol. 2, 1101-1108 pp
In this study, the geotechnical properties of the 2nd Organized Industrial Region clays
were investigated and the settlement analysis was made with Plaxis software.
First of all, the geotechnical properties of the disturbed and undisturbed specimens
taken from the 2nd Organized Industrial Region and its surroundings were determined
with laboratory and field (SPT) tests according to criterion defined in TS 1900. For this
purpose, there were drilled 18 bore wells with 40 m depth. The parameters that would
be used in the analyses were defined, and the consolidation settlement values occurring
under additional structural stresses were calculated. Later, considering the results
obtained from the field and laboratory data, the consolidation settlement analysis of the
investigated area was performed with the Plaxis software.
The analytical results were compared with the results obtained from the analyses
performed with Plaxis software, and it was observed that especially the Plaxis
settlement values were in large values. The base pressure (kPa) - settlement correlation
for this region’s soils was produced using the Plaxis software.
Keywords: geotechnical properties, finite element method, consolidation settlement, Konya.
