ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONSOLIDATION OF LAYERED SYSTEMS

AN ANALYTICAL SOLUTION IS PRESENTED TO THE LAYERED CONSOLIDATION PROBLEM FOR A GENERAL SET OF BOUNDARY CONDITIONS AND AN ARBITRARY LOAD HISTORY. AN EXAMPLE IS PROVIDED IN WHICH THE SOIL PROFILE CONSISTS OF FOUR COMPRESSIBLE LAYERS. THE CONSOLIDATION WAS CALCULATED OF AN OVER CONSOLIDATED GLACIAL TILL COMPOSITE WHICH WAS FREE DRAINING AT BOTH THE TOP AND BOTTOM BOUNDARIES. THE RESULTS WERE SUCCESSFULLY CHECKED AGAINST A WHOLLY NUMERICAL SOLUTION TO THE LAYERED CONSOLIDATION PROBLEM.
