Layer Thickness Determination Using Layered Analysis Approach

1 Enter applicable information in cells C15 through F20


2 For the first layer, use the E of the next lower layer as the MR in the Inputs Box below this ta
3 The minimum layer thickness is calculated in column H. Enter the "practical" layer thickness
4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each layer, always using the E of the next lower layer as the MR in
5 Check to ensure resulting SN meets or exceeds required SN
6 Note that this procedure is not valid if any layer beneath layer 1 has an E greater than 40,00
