How do you calculate the subgrade reaction modulus of a soil? I need to check some old design calcs by hand and do not know what value I should use for kh. I do have the general soil parameters and the results of a Brom computer analysis. But these results do not include details of the lateral pile displacements and so I cannot use the relationship between pressure and displacement (p-y). Any ideas?
