Proceedings of the conference held in Evanston, Illinois, June 16-19, 1964. Sponsored by the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Design of Foundations for Control of Settlement contains many papers covering a broad range of issues in soil mechanics. Topics include consolidation of nonhomogeneous clay layers, methods of estimating settlement, consolidation testing with back pressure, interpretation of the consolidation test, compressibility of clay, shallow foundations, and pile and pier foundations. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers in the field of soil mechanics and foundations.
