The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Manual, Settlement Analysis, presents guidelines for calculation of vertical displacements and settlement of soil under shallow foundations. As soil is a nonhomogenous porous material comprising solids, fluid, and air, this manual describes vertical displacement and settlement caused by changes in stress and water content. The manual also provides guidance for the following: tests and analyses to estimate secondary compression settlement; estimation of settlement for dynamic loads; calculation of soil movements in expansive soils; calculation of settlement in collapsible soil.

Subject Headings: Soil settlement | Soil analysis | Soil compression | Foundation settlement | Dynamic loads | Expansive soils | Displacement (mechanics) | Shallow foundations
