You are Correct, Thanks @Pawankalyan.

In the case of compression index means e-eo.

So ultimate settlement directly proportional to both compression index and void ratio.

Sc = Cc *(H/1+e) * log( Po/Pi).

Where
Sc= settlement.
Cc=compression index.
H=depth.
Po=present effctv ovrbrdn prsr.
e= void ratio.

What is the Equation for ultimate settlement?

Arsalan said:   5 years ago
How void ratio is inversely proportional? Please tell me.

@Srinu.

Not void ratio b'coz void ratio is inversely proportional to the ultimate settlement. And the question asks about directly proportional, so, depth and compression index are the answer.

Srinu said:   7 years ago
Why not void ratio? Sf=H (Cc ÷ 1 + e) ln(delta(sigma)÷sigma).

There is no word like a compressive index. It should be compression index.

So option A should be correct answer.
