EN The paper aims at presenting the influence of strain moduli chosen at the stage of designing on the values of foundation settlement. The settlement forecasting prevailing now is still based on the readings of the primary and secondary values of soil deformation moduli from standard PN- 81/B-03020 as the values dependent on soil state and the type or origin. Such an approach is contradictory to the discovery of a strong nonlinearity of strain characteristics in the range of small strains (10(-5)-10(-3)) and does not take into consideration an increase in the modulus with the depth (with increasing mean effective stress). Therefore, for the needs of this paper, Young's modulus E has been determined for silt, based on precise triaxial tests with a local measurement of strains, and also a numerical FEM analysis has been carried out using the Z_Soil v. 2007. The analysis carried out for small foundations (2.0 m × 2.0 m footing, 400 kPa load, and 0.5 m × 0.5 m footing, 600 kPa load) and for a large foundation (40.0 m × 40.0 m raft, 200 kPa load) has shown a clear reduction of settlement, even threefold, assuming a variable value of the modulus E. This reduction is especially visible for large foundations.
