How to Calculate Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat?
Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat calculator uses Settlement of the Spreader Mat = Settlement Observed in the Plate Load Test*(Width of the Rectangular Spreader Mat*Length of the Rectangular Spreader Mat/(Diameter of the Circular Plate)^2)^0.5 to calculate the Settlement of the Spreader Mat, The Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat formula is defined as the vertical displacement or subsidence of the mat under the applied load. The spreader mat distributes the load from structures such as mobile crane outriggers over a larger area of the ground to prevent excessive localized stress and potential failure of the underlying soil. Settlement of the Spreader Mat is denoted by S_{mat} symbol.
How to calculate Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat, enter Settlement Observed in the Plate Load Test (S_{plate}), Width of the Rectangular Spreader Mat (B_{mat}), Length of the Rectangular Spreader Mat (L_{mat}) & Diameter of the Circular Plate (D_{plate}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Settlement of Rectangular Spreader Mat calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.040825 = 0.01*(2*3/(0.6)^2)^0.5.
