PLANE STRAIN AND AXIALLY SYMMETRIC CONSOLIDATION OF A CLAY LAYER ON A SMOOTH IMPERVOUS BASE

LOADED CLAY STRATA SETTLE GRADULALLY DUE TO THE SQUEEZING OUT OF WATER FROM THE PORES OF THE SOIL. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE CIVIL ENGINEER TO BE ABLE TO ASSESS THE MAGNITUDE AND PROGRESS O THIS CONSOLIDATION SETTLEMENT. ANALYSIS HAS BEEN CONFINED TO CASES WHERE THE THICKNESS OF THE STRATUM IS VERY GREAT COMPARED WITH THE DIMENSIONS OF THE LOADED AREA. THE PROBLEM OF THE POROUS ELASTIC LAYER OF INFINITE LATERAL EXTENT, TO THE SURFACE OF WHICH A UNIFORM PRESSURE IS APPLIED OVER AN INFINITE STRIP OR OVER A CIRCULAR AREA, IS TREATED HERE. SOME RESULTS OF INTEREST ARE EVALUATED AND PRESENTED IN GRAPHICAL FORM. /AUTHOR/
