Equation of the Fox's Depth Influence Factor in Elastic settlement.

(OP)
thread256-25162: Elastic settlements, Fox equations
Hello.
After more than ten years of the referenced post, there are people looking for the analytical formula of the I_f of Fox referenced by Bowles, who applies it to Steinbrenner equation.
¿Can you please share the expression, or article?
I am going to use I_f to calculate the modulus ob subgrade reaction ks as Bowles do it in the Chapter 9, Example 9-5 (Page 505, 5th Ed).
Thank you for your help.

RE: Equation of the Fox's Depth Influence Factor in Elastic settlement.

Isn't the equation given in Poulos and Davis' Elastic Solutions for Soil and Rock Mechanics?

RE: Equation of the Fox's Depth Influence Factor in Elastic settlement.

It isn't - I've just looked - you could always take the plot given in various texts - Poulos and Davis, Tomlinson and pick out sufficient points, put it in Excel and get the equations for the various a/b ratios.
