Regression Analysis of Observed Foundation Settlement by Modified Logistic Growth Model
Logistic model is modified through introducing the pseudo construction settlement. Based on the observed settlement data of foundation in Yangshan deepwater port project, Logistic growth model and modified Logistic growth model are used for nonlinear regression analysis of foundation settlement respectively. It is indicated that the fitting curves by using modified Logistic growth model agree better with the observed settlement values than those by using Logistic growth model and that the correlation coefficients by using modified Logistic growth model are also bigger. Model parameters of different geological conditions obtained by nonlinear regression analysis can be used for significant reference to foundation settlement prediction of similar geological condition in other deepwater port.
