Modulus of Subsoil Reaction According to Schmitt
This analysis of the modulus of subsoil reaction builds on the relation between oedometric modulus and bending stiffness of the structure introduced by Schmitt in Revue Francaise de Géotechnique no. 71 and 74:
bending stiffness of the structure [MNm2/m]
oedometric modulus [MPa]
This method is not available for the structures from plastic sheet piles.
