Settlement of Structures

RÉSUMÉ OF CONFERENCE ON SETTLEMENT
To show the present state of research in the field of forecasts of the settlement of structures, the writer reviews an article by N. A. Tsytovich devoted to the Conference on Forecast of Settlement of Structures sponsored by the Soil Mechanics Section of the Commission for Construction Problems of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR late in 1954 (1955, p. 93–95). Papers presented at this conference treated two main problems: the evaluation of methods of computation of the settlement of structures on the basis of comparison of calculated data with results of observations in the field, and the selection of values of soil characteristics for estimating settlement of structures.
