The finite element method (FEM) was used to predict soil sinkage by multiple loadings (ten loadings) of a rectangular plate and a two-dimensional FEM program entitled PRESSINK was modified and employed to perform required numerical calculations. The FEM analysis was finally verified through laboratory test. Results of the laboratory test proved that the FEM is a relatively accurate and powerful technique to predict soil sinkage by multiple loadings. Results of the study also indicated that the number of loadings noticeably affected soil sinkage. Moreover, the first three loadings caused critical soil sinkage and the amount of soil sinkage owing to the first three loadings was about 89% and 82% of the total soil sinkage based on the FEM analysis and laboratory test results, respectively.
