CONSOLIDATION AND GEOCHEMISTRY OF SOME CLAYS

THE TWO-PARAMETER POWER LAW HAS BEEN USED TO DESCRIBE THE VISCOUS RESISTANCE TO COMPRESSION OCCURRING DURING SOIL CONSOLIDATION. THIS PAPER ATTEMPTS TO APPRAISE THE TWO EMPIRICAL CONSTANTS APPEARING IN THE POWER LAW. SPECIFICALLY, AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO RELATE THESE CONSTANTS TO THE MINERALOGICAL, CHEMICAL, AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF A SELECT SET OF REMOLDED CLAYS. EXPRESSIONS FOR THESE CONSTANTS ARE PRESENTED WHICH ARE ANALOGOUS TO THE SKEMPTON RELATIONSHIP FOR THE COMPRESSION INDEX OF NORMALLY CONSOLIDATED CLAY. /ASCE/
