This paper presents a method of analysis of monitored settlements of a bridge embankment in Franeker, the Netherlands. Consolidation coefficients (cv), final settlement and duration are calculated from the monitored time–settlement data using a simple linear approach. Reanalysis is made to overcome uncertainties in settlement predictions arising mainly from the presence of soft soil layers, pre-construction drainage and the soil volume affected by net drainage quantities.
