1-D CONSOLIDATION OF PERIODICALLY LAYERED SOIL

A computationally efficient technique for analyzing the one-dimensional consolidation of periodically layered deposits was developed. This technique involves the use of a Laplace transform and an analytic solution to the governing equation is determined in transformed space. The transform is then inverted numerically. The technique is used to examine the response of periodically layered deposits. Particular emphasis is given to the effects of pumping from an underlying aquifer. The consolidation of deposits with a linear initial excess pore pressure distribution and impermeable or permeable base is also examined.
