COEFFICIENT OF SECONDARY COMPRESSION: DISCUSSION

THE PAPER WHICH REVIEWS PUBLICATIONS DEALING WITH SECONDARY COMPRESSION IS DISCUSSED HERE. THE NECESSITY TO STATE WHICH PARAMETERS AND SYMBOLS ARE BEING USED BY THE INVESTIGATOR, IS EMPHASIZED. A UNIFORM DEFINITION OF THE COEFFICIENT OF SECONDARY COMPRESSION SHOULD INVOLVE THE THICKNESS OF THE SAMPLE OR STRATUM, AS THE THICKNESS STRONGLY INFLUENCES THE AMOUNT OF SECONDARY DEFORMATION. THE DEFINITION SHOULD STATE WHETHER THE THICKNESS IS THE ORIGINAL THICKNESS OF THE COMPRESSIBLE SOIL, OR ITS THICKNESS PRIOR TO OR DURING THE LOAD INCREMENT BEING STUDIED. CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO FURNISHING ANOTHER COEFFICIENT OR INDEX NUMBER DEFINED AS THE RATIO OF SECONDARY COMPRESSION PER LOG CYCLE OF TIME TO PRIMARY COMPRESSION. THE INFLUENCE OF TEMPERATURE ON THE SECONDARY COMPRESSION OF OVERCONSOLIDATED SPECIMENS IS ALSO DISCUSSED.
