mv for settlement calcs and the Cc/1+e0 & Cr/1+e0 method

(OP)
What is the difference between mv for settlement calcs and the Cc/1+e0 & Cr/1+e0 method? Is mv used for normally consolidated soils and the latter used when there has been some OCR effects and a preconol pressure? Any clarifications would be great

Check out page 59 of Bowles' Foundation Analysis and Design, 5th Edition (a readily available US textbook that is referenced by many. Then reference the other pages of book section 2.10. Can also see page 227 of Terzaghi Peck and Mesri (1995).
