THE FALLACY OF PLANE STRAIN IN CONSOLIDATION

THE TERZAGHI ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONSOLIDATION TEST IS ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED TESTS IN SOIL MECHANICS. MANY FEATURES OF THIS TEST ARE, HOWEVER, OBSCURE, INCLUDING THE LATERAL PRESSURE ON THE WALLS OF THE CONTAINER, AND THE DISTRIBUTION ON HORIZONTAL PLANES OF STRESSES, STRAINS AND PORE WATER PRESSURE. INFORMATION ON THESE FEATURES WOULD BE APPLICABLE TO THE SOLUTION OF VARIOUS ENGINEERING AND GEOLOGICAL AND GEOLOGICAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS AT REST EARTH PRESSURE, MEASUREMENT OF INSITU PORE PRESSURES, FORMATION OF TENSION CRACKS IN SEDIMENTARY DEPOSITS, COAL SEAMS, CLAYS AND PEATS, AS WELL AS PROVIDING A CLEARER UNDERSTANDING OF THE WHOLE PROCESS OF CONSOLIDATION. /AUTHOR/
