I'm looking for standards and good references to use for analysing rigid inclusions (e.g. CMC's, stone columns, piles, etc) to reduce consolidation settlements in soft clay after placement of fill + other surcharge loads. More specifically, I'm interested in calculating the average modulus between soil and structure (another method rather than obtaining a weighted average?) and designing the bridging platform at the top of these rigid inclusions.
