This paper reports a symposium in which, via common predictions of various waste clay disposal scenarios, various large deformation consolidation model users could compare results focusing on areas of agreement and differences. Nine diffenent large deformation consolidation model users provided predictions of pond (solids) elevation histories and 1-year pore pressure and void ratio profiles for 4 different waste clay disposal scenarios. These predictions are summarized and discussed. It is noted that a variety of computer programs and solution techniques exist for solving the nonlinear governing consolidation equation. These techniques include implicit and explicit finite diffrences, material-based and spatial-based coordinate systems, and finite element techniques. These and other study findings are discussed.
