|French term or phrase: module linéique de mobilisation de la pression frontale|
|Still on this soil survey; I have no idea how to phrase this in English:|
HYPOTHESE DE SOL POUR LA REPRISE DES EFFORTS HORIZONTAUX ET MOMENTS EN TETE DE PIEUX
Le **module linéique de mobilisation de la pression frontale** Kf pour un élément de fondation profonde est calculé par les formules suivantes :
I can't reproduce the formula beause it won't let me copy it in from the pdf file and it's too complicated to type manually here!
|English translation:linear soil pressure coefficient|
without the formula, I cannot be sure, but in view of the fact that you mentioned that it was represented by Kf, I am pretty sure that this is it...do a google search on "piles" and "soil pressure coefficient" and see if you can find back the formula, or something similar.... good luck!

|Thanks for your help - I ended up sticking with "linear frontal pressure modulus", because I really wasn't sure what they were getting at here, so thought I'd better stick as close as possible to the French. I have flagged it to the client, so if I receive any feedback, I'll report back here!|

I have linéique in my Architecture & construction dictionary as meaning "per unit of length", if that's any help. Dicobat, has "lineal". Not at all sure about the rest. This is more about the modulus of elasticity, and its relation to stress isn't it?
