A circular raft foundation of $20$ m diameter and $1.6$ m thick is provided for a tank that applies a bearing pressure of $110$ kPa on sandy soil with Young’s modulus, $E_s’=30$ MPa and Poisson’s ratio, $v_s=0.3$. The raft is made of concrete ($E_c=30$ GPa and $v_c=0.15$). Considering the raft as rigid, the elastic settlement (in mm) is

  1. $50.96$
  2. $53.36$
  3. $63.72$
