In general, the soil stiffness and elastic modulus depends on the consistensy and packing density of the soil Typical values of soil Young s modulus are given below as guideline Typical values of Young s modulus for granular material MPa based on Obrzud Truty 2012 complied from Kezdi 1974 and Prat et al 1995...

What is the difference between Subgrade Modulus and ,

For a Mat foundation both mean the same, but in case of piles both have different meanings The applied horizontal pressure p and soil deflection y are related as p=kh y , where kh is the modulus of subgrade reaction, with units KN/m 3 Now ....

Young s modulus or Young modulus is a mechanical property that measures the stiffness of a solid material It defines the relationship between stress force per unit area and strain proportional deformation in a material in the linear elasticity regime of a uniaxial deformation Young s modulus is named after the 19th-century British scientist Thomas Young...
