Hello

I had been developing a spreadsheet for the calculation of Elastic settlements in foundations on granular soils using theory of Elasticity . I had problem for calculating "Depth Influence Factor" . I can only find a chart in literature generated using Fox's (1948) equation from where every time i had to read values and insert in the cell.

Can any one guide me that how can I find this Fox's equation or any other alternate way to get this factor without reading chart for every time.

Thanking in anticipation.
