APPLICATION OF ELECTRO-OSMOSIS TO A FOUNDATION PROBLEM IN A NORWEGIAN QUICK CLAY

THE PAPER DESCRIBES A CASE WHERE THE APPLICATION OF ELECTRO-OSMOSIS RESULTED IN AN INCREASE IN STRENGTH OF A VERY SOFT QUICK CLAY FROM AN INITIAL VALUE OF LESS THAN 1 T/M SQUARED TO AN AVERAGE VALUE OF 4 T/M SQUARED. BASED ON OBSERVATIONS MADE DURING TREATMENT AND AT THE EXCAVATION SITE, AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO GIVE A PICTURE OF THE EFFECT OF ELECTRO-OSMOTIC TREATMENT ON A SOFT CLAY. THE OBSERVATIONS INCLUDE MEASUREMENTS OF SETTLEMENTS AND PORE PRESSURES AT VARIOUS DEPTHS AND STUDIES OF THE CHANGE IN PROPERTIES OF THE CLAY RESULTING FROM THE TREATMENT. /AUTHOR/
