Immidiate settlement : 

Immediate settlement take place during the construction or after the construction of structure. its also known a distorsion settlement.
It's computed by the elastic theory especially for cohesion soil.

Primery settlement : 
  • this type of settlement occured due to th expulsion of water from the voides of soil called primery or comsolidation settlement.
