Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computing in Civil Engineering


The use of spreadsheets is becoming ever more popular in the practice of civil engineering. Engineers are able to use this tool to meet deadlines which were once insurmountable. This paper highlights a project which used a macro-driven spreadsheet developed to determine the amount of settlement that could be expected in structural foundations in the vicinity of a contamination remediation operation which would require the regional groundwater table to be lowered through pumping.
