ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONSOLIDATION OF UNSATURATED FINE-GRAINED SOILS

This study attempts to analyze the phenomenon of consolidation and a differential equation reflecting more realistic conditions than those of previously published works. It solves the nonlinear differntial equation obtained, and compares the new solution with the classical approximation of Terzaghi. The paper reviews the infiltration theory, and describes the derivation of the necessary equations. The details of the experimental work are described and the results are discussed.
