THE CONSOLIDATION OF SOME NORMALLY CONSOLIDATED FINE-GRAINED SOILS SUBJECTED TO LARGE LOAD RATIOS AND ONE-DIMENSIONAL DRAINAGE

A THEORY OF CONSOLIDATION ASSUMING A VARIABLE COEFFICIENT OF COMPRESSIBILITY AND PERMEABILITY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. SOLUTIONS ARE GIVEN FOR THE CASE OF A THIN BED OF CLAY SUBJECTED TO AN INSTANTANEOUS LOAD INCREMENT. ONE DIMENSIONAL DRAINAGE TESTS PERFORMED IN BOTH THE OEDOMETER AND TRIAXIAL CELL ARE PRESENTED. THE TESTS IN THE TRIAXIAL CELL WERE DONE USING HYDROSTATIC LOADING. THE LABORATORY WORK WAS CONDUCTED ON SOME REMOULDED NEW SOUTH WALES SOILS, AND SOME UNDISTURBED ONTARIO SOILS USING INSTANTANEOUS LOADING AND LARGE LOAD RATIOS. THE PROPOUNDED THEORY WAS FOUND TO BE IN REASONABLE BUT NOT IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT WITH THE TEST RESULTS. /CGRA/RRL/
