An analysis on allowable settlements of structures



This paper examines allowable settlements of structures built in Italy, the results of which have been pu-
blished in the last 25 years.
Sixty-nine structures of various types with both superficial and deep foundations in cohesive, granular and layered soils
are analysed.
After a brief state-of-the·art of the various methods used to approach the problem, various cases are examined with re-
ference to the models proposed by Skernpton and MacDonald.
The good correlation between maximum settlement and angular distorsion allowed preliminary elements for an evalua-
tion of admissible deformations on the basis of settlement calculations.
