Spanish term or phrase: asiento
SPAIN: Text about soil compaction. Lots of glossary entries for this, but which one to use? I think it may be settling/sttlement but would like confirmation either way.
"El tipo de compactación será determinado por el proyectista dependiendo de criterios de estabilidad, capacidad de carga, asiento máximo y capacidad de soporte, así como las características intrínsecas del material."
